Make Opening Day a national holiday?! YES, PLEASE!
Hall of Famer, Ozzy Smith, is leading the charge (along with some big league sponsors like Budweiser) to get 100-thousand signatures in 30 days on a We The People petition. 100-thousand signatures is what's needed to get President Obama to consider it.
MLB Opening Day is more than just the beginning of the season. It’s a symbol of rebirth. The coming of spring. The return of America's national pastime. It’s a state of mind where anything is possible. You can feel the electricity in the air. Opening Day brings with it the promise of a new beginning. Every fan is in good spirits. It’s a day of celebration. It’s a day of hope. It’s a day that, for generations, has been looked forward to by baseball fans every off-season. It’s an American tradition, and it deserves to be recognized as an American holiday. Join us in our quest to make sure every American can exercise their inalienable right to celebrate the day those two magical words are uttered for the first time: “PLAY BALL!" -From We The People
