Budweiser and Ozzie Smith Push For MLB Opening Day Holiday Petition Signatures

Few things give me chill bumps like the thought of Major League Baseball’s Opening Day. As a lifelong, die-hard White Sox fan, I find myself aching for that first pitch that matters every season. If you share the same affinity for baseball, Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith has a petition for you to sign.

I have heard some talk of making MLB’s Opening Day a national holiday, but this is the first evidence I’ve seen of someone taking the idea seriously. Watch this video, and decide if you want to sign the petition to send this motion off to Washington, D.C. for consideration.

It’s my understanding that they will take signatures from people who don’t love baseball as much as I do, but still want the day off work. It’s also my understanding that they will take signatures from Cubs fans (against better judgement). In fact, all that’s required is that you are of legal drinking age (it’s a Budweiser thing). Here’s a link to the petition site.

While there is a series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks in Sydney, Australia on March 22nd and 23rd, MLB’s official Opening Day 2014 is set for Monday, March 31st.
