It has been announced that Aaron Harang will be making the Opening Day start again. It’s the fifth straight year that the big guy will be on the hill for Cincinnati’s unofficial holiday game.
Only three other Reds have started five straight Opening Days: Pete Donohue, Mario Soto, and Jimmy Haynes. Wait…what? Maybe there are only two other pitchers who have accomplished that feat in Reds history.
(If Jimmy Haynes had started five straight Opening Days, this blog wouldn’t exist because I would’ve already jumped off a bridge.)
