After great anticipation, the 2012 Major League Baseball season finally has arrived. And, for ESPN it has arrived in a big way with five season-opening telecasts in three days beginning with Opening Night — Cardinals at Marlins and the grand opening of Marlins Park — Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET. Those game telecasts are a part of ESPN’s all-encompassing commitment to the sport.
