(WMC-TV) - There could not have been a better opening weekend for the Redbirds, as far as weather goes. It felt like spring, and everyone was talking about it.

Fans were filing in at AutoZone Park Saturday, excited for one of the first few games.

"It's beautiful we've been outside half the day. Got to walk around downtown, Beale Street, took a carriage. So it's just been wonderful. I love the weather," said Sarah Zitzelberger.

Zitzelberger and her family, admitting last week's rainy weather, gave everyone a little cabin fever.

"From it going warm and cold, warm and cold, it's been crazy with the allergies. But I was kind of disappointed when it got real cold this time. Bring back the spring," she said.

And for Jesse and Stephanie Gatlin, Saturday's nice weather meant bringing their son to his first Redbirds game.

"Good time to be out here, the sunshine and warm weather," said Stephanie.

Sometimes warm weather is all you need to remember that summer weather Is just around the corner.

This weekend also marked the start of the Memphis farmers market, and the unofficial start of wedding season.
