What we'll miss most with MLB Opening Day delayed due to coronavirus

I might not ever be able to top this Opening Day. And unfortunately, I won’t be able to know that for a while.

Last year, around this time, I saw a tall man walk out of the visiting dugout at the Oakland Coliseum for the A’s home opener. Which, if the unwritten rules apply -- and they should -- that means categorically, this was Opening Day for green and gold fans.

“Beautifullllll Oakland,” the tall man in an Angels uniform said as he smiled and ran out onto the field.

I giggled to myself, and at his tongue-in-cheek quip.
