MLB Opening Day, Yankees, Nationals, Giants, Dodgers

MLB Opening Day postponed Due To Coronavirus

We made it after four months! Baseball is back and Opening Day begins with two games. One on the East Coast and one on the West Coast. First up in Washington Max Scherzer and the World Series champion Washington Nationals host prized ace Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees. We will carry the Yanks-Nats game here on ESPN 99.1 beginning at 5:00 PM.

Later tonight out west a marquee matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants where a smiling Mookie Betts now can afford to smile for the next 12 years after signing a $365 million contract. Who won’t we see? That would be Giants catcher Buster Posey. He’s among about a dozen players who have chosen to sit out this year. Plus, his wife just gave birth to twin girls.

And remember there are a few new rules this season including DHs in the National League and an automatic runner on second to start the 10th inning

But what a crazy Opening Day. Only a 60-game season before us, no fans in the stands. And how many players will we see wearing masks? Then you have the aesthetics of piped-in crowd noise, fake spectators made out of cardboard, and advertising signage covering blocks of seats. This is not the baseball we are used to but when it comes down to it, Play Ball!
