Tomorrow marks the unofficial national holiday that isn’t anymore: baseball’s opening day.
It’s a spring tradition, of course. Here’s another: Red Bull disguising Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant and sending him out to see what the little people are up to.
This year: He attends a fantasy baseball draft (the participants think they’re part of a documentary on fantasy baseball) where an unsuspecting bro is about to draft Kris Bryant.
The Twins open the season in Baltimore, playing a day game. The Target Field home opener is next Thursday, when temperatures will be in the 30s.
