Baseball's favorite holiday is upon us — opening day. It'll be a fun day here on The Stew. Once the games get going, we'll have our annual live chat with Yahoo! Sports baseball columnist Jeff Passan and the Stew crew. Be sure to come join us.

Before that gets going, though, we thought you might like to get up to speed on the season ahead. And what better way than with all the posts and videos that the Yahoo! Sports team has been putting together for the past few weeks? The opening day schedule and pitchers are below too. Play ball!
