It’s MLB Opening Day today!! The Red Sox take on the Orioles at Fenway park with first pitch being at 2:10pm. This year MLB has adopted a pitch clock to speed up the game, bigger bases to encourage more steals, and the infield shift has been banished. Spring Training games were an average of 26 minutes shorter. In addition to faster action MLB ballparks this year will also be featuring new marquee menu items.
The Texas Rangers introduced a two-foot-long burger topped with onion rings and chili called “The Boomstick Burger.”
