Ozzie Wants A National Holiday: I say Meet Me in St. Louie

Ozzie Smith says that Baseball’s Opening Day should be a national holiday, and while I agree in principle, I believe his idea can be tweaked a bit on the local level.  The only sport that has its first day of play listed as an encyclopedia item is baseball, and the game’s first day is often more revered than the day […]
