Why time begins on Opening Day

Happy Opening Day of the 2011 Major League Baseball season!

Today marks the first time that MLB has opened its season on a Thursday since 1976.

To celebrate Opening Day, below are some illustrations by Eric Gurney from the 1957 pamphlet "Baseball Made Plain," which was published by MLB's Office of the Commissioner.

(Today's blog title, of course, comes from the 1984 book by Thomas Boswell.)

Now go watch some baseball!
