As opening day came and went but never actually came this past week, emotions were all over the place for baseball fans. While the baseline was sadness, some folks put on a brave face while making the best of the situation.
Amonst the people that brave-faced it and still proudly celebrated opening day, Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner provided some golden content on his Twitter account.
?Opening Day Challenge?

Teamed up with his wife Kourtney, the two put together an opening day challenge video for the ages. Moreover, he created the #JTOpeningDayChallenge hashtag and called out fans to create their best renditions of opening day from home.
The internet did not disappoint when it came to submissions.
User MLBallhawks used his collection of Dodger bobbleheads to come up with a creative entry.

Finally, the effort of these users could net them an authentic Justin Turner bat, as featured in his video.
Thanks goes out to the Turner clan for the creativity and in helping people make it through these crazy times without baseball.
