Problem with that is that games are already at risk of snow-outs in early April, putting them in March would guarantee it. Never made sense that they don't intentionally rig the schedule so that all of the early April games are played in the southern states, or out west, or at least in domes. Let the northern teams play on the road the first 2 weeks of the season...
Starting baseball a month earlier would be a mess. As Scout
said, there's already a pretty good risk of having a snow-out in April (moreso than October). Not sure about other places, but March is the snowiest month in MN. And yeah, you can rig the schedule somewhat (seems to me they already do that to some extent), but with a 162 games, you're kind of limited to how much you can dick around with a baseball schedule.
But football games are often played in adverse conditions. So why not allow for the possibility of weather coming into play during a Super Bowl? If a potential host city has the stadium, infarstructure and the money to bid, go for it.
