I was there (still have my ticket somewhere). Utterly unforgettable...the first sign that the team's lean years were starting to end.

the old fuddruckers uni. I managed to  get both JZ's and Stras's debuts.

I was at that game and I remember thinking that as much fun as the 2005 home opener was, I'd argue Strasburg's debut was the more electric night because it was about something specific to that team. In 2005, you could have put Charlie Brown's team out there and people would have gone nuts that we finally had baseball again.

This was really the day that we felt we were turning the corner as an organization. Stras is probably my favorite all-time Nat.
