Here is everything you need to know from Major League Baseball’s opening night/day in under 90 seconds.

The baseball season is officially underway after Opening Day on Monday, though technically it began when the Chicago Cubs hosted the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night.

I’m going to break down everything that happened in the baseball world on that glorious holiday in under 90 seconds in the video above. I’ve also included a run down with my thoughts below for those of you who are over achievers and want to follow along.

Please feel free to let me know what your thoughts and opinions of all the Opening Day action in the comments below or find me on Twitter @thecarm. I want to hear from you.

Sunday Night

3. 33. Final. 0. 9

No bleachers, massive bathroom and Cubs clutch hitting issues 0-13 RISP


63. Final. 0. 2. 4

Tigers 4 Twins 0 – Paul Molitor loses his MLB debut. Joe West is a terrible umpire

10. 7. Final. 1. 128

Jeff Samardzija hit Lorenzo Cain with a pitch. Mike Moustakas lost it and wanted to fight Samardzija, yelling some naughty words from the dug out.

43. 6. 39. Final. 1

Yankees fans cheer loudly for admitted steroid user Alex Rodriguez, who made his return as a designated hitter. Com’n Yankees fans.

0. 76. 10. 108. Final

Bob Uecker didn’t retire…

14. Final. 0. 6. 8

Dustin Pedroia hit a huge two-run homer, declares “I’m back.”

11. Final. 2. 21. 6

Alejandro De Aza, Steve Pearce, Ryan Flaherty all hit home runs as the Orioles look to defend their AL East crown.

Final. 1. 90. 3. 3

Bartolo Colon got the win over Max Scherzer, despite being in his 40s. Impressive for the man who looks more like Andre The Giant instead of a Major League Baseball pitcher.

17. Final. 1. 82. 2

Second inning rain delay in Miami, even though they have a retractable roof. Get it together.

61. Final. 2. 4. 5

Todd Frazier had a huge 3-run homer in the 8th inning.

127. 6. 71. Final. 3

Jimmy Rollins hit a 3-run homer in his Dodger blue debut, not too shabby.

AL Cy Young award winner Cory Kluber had a no-hitter into the 6th, but it was broken up on what looked like a rather lazy play by the outfielder. He could’ve gone for it but he played it safe thinking about the win.

8. 5. 40. Final. 4

Madison Bumgarner had a solid outing, pitching 7 innings,  and giving up just a single run en route to the first of many wins this season.

0. 126. 8. 96. Final

Sonny Gray no-hit bid went into 8th before being broken up. The Rangers look like they’re going to have another rough year.
