Former Detroit Tigers player Dmitri Young set off our first “Black In The Day” video of the season by recalling his greatest career moment, a three-homer Opening Day back in 2005.
Only four players have ever cranked out three homers on Opening Day.
The great George Bell (Blue Jays vs. Royals on April 4, 1988). Tuffy Rhodes abused Black Ace Dwight Gooden for three bombs on April 4, 1994. Dmitri Young (Tigers vs. Royals on April 4, 2005) and the most recent player was Matt Davidson, who launched three lasers against the Royals on March 29, 2018.
Mlbbro.com went Black In The Day with Young, who is now a 47-year-old high school baseball coach.
