Opening Day a national holiday? 100,000 signatures collected
(CNN) — Baseball fans have stepped up to the plate — collecting the necessary 100,000 signatures for a campaign to make Opening Day a national holiday.
The deciding signature came from a person in San Marcos, California.
The petition kicked off less than a month ago, with Budweiser and Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith.
The White House will have to make a decision on this matter, which could take a few months.
Opening Day for the 2014 baseball season is March 31st.
