MLB season opens down under

The LA Dodgers have an undefeated record of 2-0 in the early MLB season as they have beaten the Arizona Diamondbacks in their first two official games of the season. The games kicked off this year in Sydney, Australia at the historic Sydney Cricket Ground stadium.

Vin Scully opened up the broadcast by telling the listeners about this stadium, the designers were able to keep the old portion with the original part of the building when they incorporated it into the newer design of the remodeled stadium.

There has been 28 players from Australia to make the Major Leagues, and the 2 games played in Sydney delighted large crowds that came to see it.

MLB Baseball has opened up 4 times in Japan and once in Mexico and Puerto Rico. It's the first time ever for the game to open in Australia.
