Repack Haiku #355 (Shane Reynolds)

One of four Astros
To start on Opening Day
Five or more seasons
1997 Topps #430 Shane Reynolds

 Reynolds got the Opening Day honor for Houston from 1996-2000. He joins J.R. Richard (5), Mike Scott (5), and Roy Oswalt (8) as the only Asros pitchers to have done so at least 5 times.

  1. This post and piece of trivia motivated me to research who had 5 or more Opening Day starts for the A's and Padres...

    A's: Rick Langford (5) and Dave Stewart (6)
    Padres: None

    Was pretty surprised Jake Peavy and Randy Jones didn't reach five. Both had four. As for the A's, Stewart didn't surprise me, but Langford did a little.
