It's been on everyone's minds for months. With the shut down of public spaces and venues what is going to happen to "America's Greatest Past Time"? The 2020 baseball season is unique and will be part of history for many reasons, including the opening day that almost didn't happen. But, it is going to happen and we are all very excited about it. So excited, that we are memorializing this moment with the release of the Solid Silver Collectible, Opening Day 2020. The release was published in Numismatic News.

Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, Osborne Mint has previously celebrated baseball’s opening day from the Opening Day Parade to the first pitch. Opening Day in Cincinnati is considered by most to be an unofficial official holiday. Sports Illustrated stated that “Throughout baseball’s long history, no locale has been more synonymous with Opening Day than Ohio’s Queen City (Cincinnati).” Despite COVID-19 negating this year’s original March 26 start date, baseball fans kept the faith that they would get to see a season this year."
