2011 MLB Season to Begin on a Friday to Avoid November World Series
From USA Today:
Major League Baseball, trying to avoid having long underwear as part of its players' postseason apparel, is planning to start the 2011 season in earnest on Friday, April 1 - three days earlier than traditional Monday opener.
It would be the first time a majority of teams start the season on a Friday since 1905, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The regular season would end Wednesday, Sept. 28 with playoffs opening on Sept. 30 or Oct. 1. The World Series is scheduled to start Wednesday, Oct. 19, a week earlier than the last two years. It would virtually assure the World Series would not be played in November.
Not a huge fan of this, why change tradition? Is three days really going to make a big difference?
