Opening Day, 1979: young Jesse Orosco makes his major league debut, coming in to pitch to one batter and getting the last out of the game. The batter he faced was....Bill Buckner.

I was hoping for a hit or a sacrifice fly so he could have a perfect day at the plate. He popped up to the infield. I felt a strange foreboding at that moment.
