(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 20-14 season is March 31st.
