Rabbit season! Duck Season! Rabbit season… Elmer Fudd is so confused as Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny argue it out while re-adjusting which way the befuddled hunter is pointing his shotgun.

Finally in desperation Elmer cries out to a passing game warden… “gee Mr. Warden what season is it really?” The warden looks sternly at Elmer and says “Why everybody knows it’s baseball season!”

And so it is.

It may feel a lot like winter here in Michigan but baseball season it is. The tigers will start on the road but it will still be brutal on the diamond for their home opener this Friday against the ever-hated Yankees. As a wise man once told me, “playing baseball in Michigan in April is stupid.”

Again, and so it is.
