Roman Catholics have expressed displeasure with baseball's Detroit Tigers because the team will start its home opener on Good Friday during the time of day that Jesus' crucifixion and death took place. All major league teams play on April 10, but the Tigers are the only one to begin a game during Jesus' time on the cross.
While I sharply disagree with many of the Roman Catholic Church's teachings, I respect them for bringing this issue up. We are a sports crazy society, and a team's home opener is big news for any city. However, it is important to keep our priorities in order.
We'll get to enjoy baseball throughout the spring and summer (unless the Braves tank it early in the season).
There is a time for everything. The least the Tigers could do is push back the game's starting time out of respect.
