For all those baseball fans out there, today feels like Christmas! The road to the regular season has finally reached a halt because today, April 1st marks the beginning of Major League Baseball for the 2011 season.

The Cubs new manager, Mike Quade, along with the team are anxious and excited about the season ahead. They performed well throughout camp, and are entering Opening Day with a clean bill of health. The Cubs open today at 1:20pm CT against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Starting on the mound today is Ryan Dempster. This is his third season with the Cubs, and is honored to be the Opening Day starter. He said he has to be mentally tough, and remain as consistent as possible. He is looking forward to the season’s start, and hopes this will be the first of many starts for him this season.

If your schedule allows, head down to Wrigley Field this afternoon to cheer on the Cubs in their home opener. But, if today doesn’t fit into your work schedule, they face the Pirates again tomorrow at 12:05 pm.
