Who made more Opening Day starts than any pitcher in baseball annals.

Answer: Tom Seaver (16)

Joe Kennedy

A catcher growing up, Joe moved to the mound, where he now has a bright future. The hard-throwing lefty has come a long way. He went from dominating Class-A hitters in 2000 to retiring big-leaguers the next season. Joe's best pitch is a big-bending curveball that helped him allow no more than three earned runs in five of his first six MLB starts.
