Well folks, we made it.
It took six long months, but we finally made it to Opening Day. While the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers got us started on Sunday night, Monday was deemed the official Opening Day for the 2013-14 season.
Opening Day has a way of giving hope to many baseball fans across the country.
For some teams, Opening Day represents the only day they will be sitting in first place in their respective divisions. For others, it's just the tip of the 162-game iceberg.
But Opening Day also has a way of surprising us. For instance, in 2012, the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians participated in the longest Opening Day game in history, needing 16 innings to finish their five-hour, 14-minute affair.
So what did Opening Day have in store for us this season?
Well, here are the biggest shockers from Monday's action.
Note, this does not include the surprising victory for the Houston Astros over the Texas Rangers on Sunday night (though unsurprisingly, there were two blown calls from the umpires in that game).
