Cullman Today At Opening Day of Major League Baseball 2018

Thursday (March 29th) was opening day for America’s favorite professional sports pastime: Major League Baseball.

I experienced the smell of fresh popcorn and concession workers yelling, “Get your ice-cold beer here now.”

March 29th is the earliest Opening Day in the history of baseball. With every single franchise playing a game (a rarity for opening day) there was plenty of action for you to watch on television.

I was at Citi Field in New York City to cover New York Mets versus the St. Louis Cardinals.

It was an even game until the fifth inning with both clubs trading runs in the early innings.

The Mets finally said they were tired of being tied and posted a whopping five runs with two outs already on the board.

Both teams scored one extra run apiece in the later innings.

With only 161 more games to go, it will not be to late to count out any of these teams.

FYI: I did eat the popcorn; I did not consume any beer.
