Has there ever been a MLB game where the lead-off batters from both teams have hit a home run off the starting pitcher’s first delivery?
Soriano (1st p) & Hanley Ramirez (2nd p) in ‘06. Earlier that season, Ramirez needed just 6 pitches from Eric Milton to bash the 1st & 2nd hr’s of his career. All in about 15 minutes. Didnt homer again for 6 weeks.
Let’s play two!
Thanks for that. Thanks also for the additional info about Ramirez.
The Soriano /Hanley dual leadoff homers occurred 7/18/06.
