Thursday was Opening Day for the 2011 MLB season. Outside in the cold weather, it was hard to imagine that spring was really in the air, but fans were rejoicing none-the-less. Baseball is a "very long soap opera" says Takeaway sports contributor Ibrahim Abdul-Matin. The season is long (162 games) and slow, but attracts a dedicated following.
