BOSTON (CBS) — It’s not a national holiday … yet. But it should be.
Yes, the dawn of Thursday once again brings with it baseball’s best day of the year: Opening Day. There is one downer, as we have already been robbed of having all 30 teams in action for the first time in history, thanks to the postponement of the Nationals-Reds game in Cincinnati. Nevertheless, there’s plenty of other action to keep everyone entertained.
While it’s impossible to watch every game, it’s worth trying. With that in mind, here’s a look at the complete schedule for Opening Day. (All times Eastern. National broadcasts noted.)
