After a memorable Opening Night, featuring a Cardinals victory over the Cubs, MLB's season begins in full on Monday with one of the premier dates on the sporting calendar: Opening Day.

Mike Piazza, Harold Reynolds and Jeff Nelson all were on hand to ring the famous NYSE opening bell, announcing to stock brokers that the day's trading could begin:
