Baseball Tradition

On Monday I went to Oakland to see the A’s first game of the season.

This was the fourth consecutive year that I have gone to see Opening Day.

This was the fourth consecutive year that I saw the A’s play the Seattle Mariners on Opening Day.

This was the fourth consecutive year that I saw Felix Hernández go to the mound as the Mariners’ starting pitcher on Opening Day.

This was the fourth consecutive year that I saw the A’s lose on Opening Day.

This last tradition should be placed into perspective; there are fans who have been seeing A’s lose Opening Day games for longer than I have. The A’s 2013 defeat set a new American League of nine consecutive opening day reversals. The last time that Oakland won on Opening Day was 2004.
