Play ball! Obama, Big Mac highlight opening day + video

Apr 5, 2010 6:45:00 PM - thestate.com
Baseball was in midseason form Monday as most every team in the majors opened its season.

President Barack Obama started things off with a high-and-wide ceremonial toss in Washington. After that, the stars took over.

Albert Pujols hit two home runs and Roy Halladay dominated in his debut for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Mark McGwire didn't draw much of a reaction when he was introduced in Cincinnati. The really big cheers went to Jason Heyward in Atlanta, where the 20-year-old rookie caught the first ball from Hall of Famer Hank Aaron and then homered on his first big league swing.

The major league season opened Sunday night with Boston beating the World Series champion New York Yankees.
