(WGN/CNN) — Baseball fans have stepped up to the plate.
They have collected the necessary 100-thousand signatures for a campaign to make Opening Day a national holiday.
The deciding signature came from from a person in San Marcos, California.
This petition kicked off less than a month ago with Budweiser and Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith.
The White House will have to make a decision on this matter, which could take a few months.
Opening day for the 2014 season is March 31.
