UNDATED (AP) — Major League Baseball has seen a shift in recent years, with advanced analytics and bold strategies now ruling the game. But with all 30 teams set to play Thursday on opening day across North America, there's an easy way to tell the sport has entered a new era. Look at the rosters and there's not a single active player left from the 20th century. With Adrian Beltre's retirement and Bartolo Colon's absence, everyone who played in the 1900s is now gone. The other things diminishing noticeably are complete games and shutouts.
