Opening Day was originally scheduled for April 16, but COVID-19 complications postponed the big day. Fortunately, the unofficial Toledo holiday will go on as scheduled with a virtual opening day, featuring community activities, dance competitions, birthday celebrations, a stream of a classic Mud Hens game, and much more. Grab a drink, fire up the grill, and enjoy this homerun.
