Baseball Opening Day

Each year thousands of fans anticipate the opening day of baseball. It’s a family event full of hot dogs and cheers. Here are a few fun facts about baseball.

  • The first Opening Day was April 22, 1876.
  • No perfect game has ever been thrown on Opening Day.
  • The first pitch is commonly thrown by a celebrity or politician as a ceremonial signal to the start of the game.

My family has been fortunate to attend a few of the baseball spring training here in Orlando. And of course, in Disney style, we’ve had playdates with some of the characters in the tunnel while we waited for my husband to throw out the first pitch.
