Box Score of the Week

San Francisco Giants at Houston Astros - April 6, 2004.


Giants pitcher David Aardsma made his Major League debut in this game, a game in which he earned the victory in relief. He would go on to have a pedestrian 9-year career in the majors. 

So why would I choose Aardsma's big league debut for this week's featured box score? Well, when he broke into the majors he usurped Henry Aaron (yes that Henry Aaron) as being the first player listed alphabetically when a list of every single MLB player is compiled.
