The 2008 Major League Baseball season kicks off in 14 cities today. Last week’s Japan opener between the Red Sox and A’s wast the official start of the season, but with most teams still playing exhibition games baseball was still on the back burner in most minds. The MLB season in the U.S. got started last night in Washington. The Washington Nationals celebrated the opening of a new stadium in dramatic fashion with a game winning homerun in the 9th inning with 2 outs.
Teams playing home openers today include, the Yankees, Tigers, Indians and Cubs to name a few. The Boston Red Sox and Oakland A’s will resume the series they started in Japan last week on Tueday night in Oakland. The Red Sox and A’s split the first two games of their series.
