Baseball fans have now stepped up to the proverbial plate, gathering enough signatures for a campaign to make Major League Baseball's Opening Day a national holiday.

Fans are trying to get President Barack Obama to declare Opening Day of the Major League Baseball season a day of national observance.
The deciding signature, No. 100,000, came from from a person in San Marcos, Calif.
The decision now goes to the White House, where it may take up to 60 days. The petition will remain live on whitehouse.gov until then.
The Dodgers and Diamondbacks opened the regular season over the weekend in Australia, but Opening Day for most teams in Monday, March 31.
