Thursday was set to be Opening Day for Major League Baseball, however, due to the public health practices in place because of the coronavirus pandemic, America's favorite pastime is on hold for now.
But that won't stop baseball fans from celebrating their favorite sport! The MLB, its teams and supporters all across the country and around the world took to social media to celebrate #OpeningDayAtHome, sharing photos, videos and tributes to the game they love and the teams they root for.
The league shared its own tribute, narrated by Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout, noting that, "Even though we’re apart, we can come together."
Holly Robinson Peete's 22-year-old son, R.J., works as a clubhouse assistant for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the actress said her family was doing their best to stay positive during the shutdown.
"Trying not to be too bummed about the fact that it’s supposed to be #mlb #OpeningDay," Peete captioned a collage of photos of her son in uniform and on the job. "It’s such a big day for so many. Staying in a place of gratitude for the opportunity for RJ to be a part of the #Dodgers family. But we are a little sad today for sure. 🙏🏽💙⚾️ as RJ has been saying every morning at home “thank God for another day.” #OpeningDayAtHome."
