After nearly 6 months without baseball, Opening Day is finally here! Opening Day is a very special day because it is the first day of the season. It gives players and teams another chance to prove themselves in Major League Baseball. Fans are always anxious to get out to the ballpark and attend Opening Day.

This year I will be attending my first Opening Day game, and I am extremely excited! The Twins are hosting the Detroit Tigers at Target Field on April 1st. The weather will be very cold (mid 30’s) but I know that I will still enjoy it very much. I am eagerly looking forward to seeing all of the Opening Day Festivities that the Minnesota Twins Organization has prepared for their fans. I know that the Twins will put on a great show!

Have a great season!
