So, it's a shame to see some controversy surrounding one the holiest days to those who worship at the altar of baseball.
"The Detroit Tigers have upset some Catholics who are unhappy that the club's home opener is scheduled during holy hours on Good Friday.
Traditional Christian belief says Jesus hung on the cross from noon to 3 p.m. on Good Friday. All 30 baseball teams play April 10, but the Tigers' 1:05 p.m. game against the Texas Rangers is the only one during holy hours.
Speaking as a devout Tigers fan, I think anything we can do to keep a supreme being from smiting us into another last-place finish would be a good move. But, I won't hold my breath.
