Here’s Our Official Opening Day Drinking Game

Baseball is back. Drinking never went away. Let’s combine the two and make this the best Opening Day you won’t remember.

Quick, to the game before I accidentally quote another Pitball song.

  • Strikeout

Two (2) drinks for every:

  • Home run

  • Botched hit-and-run
  • Instance of creepy camera work to find babes in the bleachers
  • Comment about insane contracts signed in the offseason
  • Discussion of the Yasiel Puig situation
  • Announcer claiming to love ballpark food
  • Kid in crowd picking nose
  • Lame joke that a player who is 1-for-1 is batting 1.000 on the year

Three (3) drinks for every:

  • Announcer actually eating ballpark food on-air
  • Suicide squeeze
  • Out recorded past the fifth inning of a no-hitter
