Baseball in the Spring is a great time for a sport-loving Millennial
The beginning of the Major League Baseball season in the Spring and April, is always a special time of year, especially for Millennials.
Some look forward to taking off a day from work to catch the day-time or night-time season opener of their favorite team, especially in the nicest weather that they have not been able to enjoy since the previous professional baseball season ended in late Summer, and early Fall.
Others might have to wait until the next week if their teams open the season away from their home stadium, or catch a Saturday day or night game because of previous commitments they have during the week that might prevent them from sitting in a ballpark as MLB teams, or squads, as Millennials sometimes refer to them as, open up their seasons for the first time in their respective stadiums with their rosters set, and have departed from their designated spring training facilities after a six-week training period in United States regions with the warmest winter temperatures.
Millennials might even tour ballparks that they have never been to like Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York, Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, Citi Field in Queens, New York, Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, AT&T Park in San Francisco or Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles while enjoying a hot dog with the works, nachos, and or Cracker Jacks in the seventh inning of each game at the ball field they are visiting.
Adding to the pleasantry, especially for Millennials who love basketball and hockey, are the NBA, and NHL playoffs, depending on what they are interested in, to view as well, creating a triple-whammy in the sporting-world.
These go until June leading right into the MLB All-Star Break with the Mid-Summer Classic, and an NBA champion and NHL champion crowned all while professional baseball is in the height of its season, and teams begin to see where they need to take their seasons in order to make it to the MLB playoffs and become World Series Champions at the end of the season in October and beginning of November, whichever comes first.
Millennials stay tuned throughout this time period and look forward to seeing if their team, that they have been rooting for since the beginning of the season, and longer, goes all the way, making this time of year even more momentous than it already is for Millennials.
