Set your watches for Opening Night

    ESPN has announced a 7 p.m. start time for the Marlins' season-opener against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals on April 4. The opener will be the first played in the new ballpark, of course, and will also kick off ESPN's coverage of Major-League baseball for the 2012 season.

    After opening their new ballpark with the single game against the Cards, the Marlins will immediately hit the road and open a series the following day in Cincinnati against the Reds. That game, scheduled for 4 p.m., will be televised on ESPN2.
