The time has come once again to shake off the cold of winter and rejoin the Boys of Summer. While it may be strange to have Opening Day for the 2014 Major League Baseball season in Australia, it is with great joy that another season starts. As with every season there are countless questions to be answered, unexpected achievements to be witnessed, and a World Series Champion to crown. Opening Day gives hope to every team. Cubs fans know this year is the year. Marlins fans know they can win another World Series this year. The Astros try to avoid losing 100 games again. Robinson Cano expects to lead the Mariners resurgence. Vin Scully returns to the air ways. Derek Jeter trots out to shortstop. Mike Trout looks to win his first of many MVPs. Families and friends go through the turnstiles and take their seats. The home plate umpire adjusts his mask to make sure it is nice and tight. Spring Training is winding down and the regular season is about to heat up. Baseball is back. Let’s paint the foul lines. Cook the hot dogs. Pour some beer. Sing the Star Spangled Banner. Cheer the home team as they take the field. Listen for the home plate umpire declare, “PLAY BALL!” Watch as the pitcher winds up and with the release of the ball from his hand let’s get this season started.
