As March Madness begins to die down, the MLB 2014 season is just getting underway. After a pair of games on Sunday's Opening Night, yesterday was the first full day of action. Opening Day's MVP was undoubtedly St. Louis' Adam Wainwright (pictured), who spent 7 innings on the mound and allowed only three hits. With 13 games in total, there were a variety of cleats worn by the day's top performers, so be sure to hit the gallery for a full rundown.

In NBA action, DeMarcus Cousins led the night in scoring with 35 points and 14 rebounds as the Kings toppled New Orleans. Recently, Cousins was spotted in the Jordan Retro V "Bel-Air", but his selection for yesterday's W might be one of his best yet. Check them out in the gallery above and let us know what you think.

Around the league, LeBron, Melo, and Brandon Jennings were all impressive as they lead their respective teams to wins. Their stats and kicks are after the jump.
