A Grand Debut
Submitted By Teddy Tincap on Friday, June 14, 2019
Fact: Al Woods hit a home run in his first at-bat in the Blue Jays' first game.

Al Woods was a rookie for the expansion Toronto Blue Jays. On April 7, 1977, the Blue Jays played their first game, which they incredibly won.

However, that was not the story of the game; in the bottom of the fifth with the Jays holding a 5-4 lead, Woods stepped up for the very first time and blasted a two-run home run.

It was the only time a player hit a home run in his and his team's debut.
