This year’s opening day is starting later this year due to the 99 day MLB lockout that finally came to an end on March 10 when the Major League Baseball Players Association reached a new collective bargaining agreement with the MLB.
But this is not the first time the MLB has had to push back opening day. Labor disputes also postponed opening day in 1972, 1990 and 1995.
