It’s the moment we have been waiting for, baseball is back. After a long winter, spring couldn’t come soon enough and with spring that only means one thing; baseball! No matter how baseball tries to disappoint you at times, Opening Day is still a welcome and special moment after that long and cold winter.
Baseball, is the greatest game of all. It is your life played across nine innings. It comes with hits, runs and errors. It is played by people who are rather isolated on the field—the pitcher, the shortstop, the center fielder—and when they make a mistake, an error, it’s there for all to see. But they do what you must do every day: Get back in the batter’s box and keep on swinging.
Today, a long-awaited, frenzied and fantastic Nationals Opening Day will start the season.
Finally, it’s that time of the year when everything seems right in the world. My friends, the greatest sport known to mankind is back. Baseball is back. This is going to be one hell of a season and I am more excited than ever to see what is in store for my teams, the Nationals and the Brewers. The power, the awe, the greatness, and everything we love about baseball is finally back. Here’s to another season of American’s pasttime, because the wait is over and baseball is back!
