The New York Yankees started the party off with a win over the Detroit Tigers. It's Opening Day for Major League Baseball.
Bust out the hot dogs, nachos and beer. For one day, we can sit back, and enjoy the grandeur of the nation's past time. No worries if your team drops game one, we have 162 of these things to go.
The Bronx Bombers got off on the right foot. You don't want to play these guys in New York on Opening Day. They never seem to lose in that situation.
Yet the Detroit Tigers showed up and fought the good fight. They might have gotten the better of the pinstripes had they not looked so sloppy.
And on cool day in Kansas City, the Royals are taking on the Anaheim, sorry, Los Angeles Angels. They are behind to the Halos at the moment. There is hope as Mike Aviles just hit a shot to right.
Will this be the Royals year? No. It doesn't matter, though. The beauty of Opening Day is that every team has a shot.
It's games two through 162 that gives clubs like the Royals trouble.
