With #OpeningDayAtHome, Dodger Fans Find Ways to Celebrate Baseball
Today was supposed to be opening day -- but sadly, there’s no baseball for now because of COVID-19.
The Dodgers should have been playing their hated rival, the San Francisco Giants, at Dodger Stadium.
Instead, Dodger fans had to settle for a virtual game. The team streamed last year’s opening day game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Twitter.
The Dodgers also shared dispatches from players spending time indoors and from Spanish-language announcer Jaime Jarrín.

Forced to stay at home, some fans found their own ways to celebrate baseball.
“I told my family, ‘Hey let’s put Dodger shirts on, take your selfie and we’re sending it to each other,” said Elizabeth Escobedo, who’s part of a five-generation Dodger family.
While she’s missing Dodger dogs and garlic fries, Escobedo said she’s reminding herself that it’s temporary.
“You know, Dodger stadium is going to be back up and running and that parking lot is going to be filled with Dodger fans again,” she said.
