However, that doesn't stop fans from celebrating some of the optimism and excitement that comes with the day they anticipate throughout the winter.
Many participate in the Opening Day Challenge from home, dress up in their favorite team's gear, and post photos of themselves on social media.
"The sole purpose is to have fun," organizers wrote on Facebook. “There are no negative comments. Don't talk trash, just dress up comfortably and make it a great day. Baseball will be back before you know it.

And if dressing up isn't enough, fans can also remember each team's best moment from Opening Day past and watch replays of previous Opening Day games.
