Take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd;
2012 is the 112th season for Major League Baseball (MLB) and Minor League Baseball (MiLB).
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, I don't care if I never get back.
The first regular MLB season series will be the Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics in the Tokyo Japan. Buy me some sushi and fried octopus balls...
Let me root, root, root for the home team, if they don't win, it's a shame.
30 MLB teams in 18 U.S. states and one Canadian province, and 160 MiLB teams in 43 states and a different Canadian province.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out, at the old ball game.
You can buy tickets at MLB.com, and there are a number of ticket resellers like TicketsNow, TicketNetwork, Razorgator, TicketSolutions, Select-a-ticket, TicketFeeder and more.
