With the return of warmer days come the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd.
Opening day is a time of hope as Major League Baseball franchises, regardless of their offseason acquisitions, dream of playoff opportunities and maybe, just maybe, World Series glory.
Fans and teams alike are tweeting their excitement for the beginning of a new season.
