Opening Day!

Posted in Sports at 8:00 am by Rebekah

Today marks the first day of the 2011 Major League Baseball season!

Today’s games include Atlanta at Washington, Detroit at the New York Yankees, Milwaukee at Cincinnati, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Kansas City, San Diego at St. Louis, and San Francisco at the Los Angeles Dodgers.

I predict the Mariners will once again come in last place in the American League West division, with the Rangers taking first place. I hope I’m wrong on both accounts, though. 🙂 I plan on going to see the Mariners play the Rangers in Arlington early next week.

At any rate, I expect the Mariners will be a bit more fun to watch this year, for when your team hits rock bottom (i.e., practically everyone but Ichiro has the worst offensive season of their career), you can only go up, right? The season will be marked with some sadness, though, as the Voice of the Mariners, Dave Niehaus, will no longer be calling the games.

Go Mariners!

Play ball!

NOW it is spring! 🙂
