The gates are open. There’s red as far as the eye can see. Dom Brown is crushing balls out during BP. And South Philadelphia smells absolutely delicious.

The atmosphere is as festive as you’d expect. The weather is beautiful, with my phone telling me the temperature is currently 61. It’s certainly windy though. So be prepared.

Here are a couple of quick photos and videos I just snapped to get you in the mood for baseball.

Get your programs (turn your audio on for this one):

And your manager, Charlie Manuel, watching batting practice:
