The A's-Mariners trip to Japan has been cancelled. Like I said, probably completely unnecessary, but understandable.

This means that the first game of the season will be the Rangers at the Angels, March 30. It should be on ESPN, though I haven't seen confirmation of this. I had been under the impression that the ceremony honoring the 2002 team at which the championship banner will be unveiled was to be before the second game of the season, but this story in the L.A. Times seems to imply that it will be on opening day.
