It’s Opening Day! (Home Version)

Or Opening Night, or Opening Weekend. I suppose April is Opening Month, and spring is Opening Season. Whatever.

Anyway, lotsa stuff on tap before tonight’s game…

Felix Hernandez will be presented with his American League Cy Young Award trophy, and Ichiro Suzuki and Franklin Gutierrez will receive their AL Gold Glove Awards. Ichiro will also be recognized for becoming the Mariners’ all-time hits leader last week as he surpassed Edgar Martinez’s franchise record… There will also be a moment of silence for victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami. The Mariners have dedicated the six-game opening homestand to Japan relief efforts, with the club promising to match all contributions by fans and front-office employees to the Japan Red Cross.

Gates open at 4:40 — I hope to get there in time for BP.
