Toledo, Ohio: The World Famous Toledo Mud Hens will hold a “Virtual Opening Day” on Thursday, April 16, 2020 to mark the beginning of the 2020 Baseball season as mass gatherings have been banned per Gov. Mike DeWine’s stay-at-home order. According to milb.com:
on April 16, join the Mud Hens for a special Facebook Live event as we reboot a classic Mud Hens game, the 2006 IL Governors’ Cup championship game against Rochester.
