It’s finally here. The 2021 season is underway. The long and dreadful months between October and April have finally passed, and we are set to play some meaningful baseball again. And it’s not just any opening day, it’s a special one, as it will be the first opening day with fans in the stands since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This season is going to be full of storylines, and many teams are set to contend for the Commissioner’s Trophy. Who will come out on top is not yet to be known, and it will surely be a very fun season.
