What we're missing: MLB stars share their best opening day memories


So on what would have, should have been the dawn of a new season, we asked people around the game — from superstars to role players — about their favorite opening day memories.


I was not starting that day so I was lucky enough to be able to take it all in — Fernando pitching, a full house in Dodger Stadium, I was a nervous wreck.


Legendary slugger Hank Aaron played his final seasons with the Milwaukee Brewers, having spent much of his career in the city with the Braves before they moved to Atlanta.


Mike Ditka threw out the first pitch because the Bears had just won the Super Bowl, and I remember Teddy Higuera throwing a great game against the Hall of Famer Tom Seaver.


Wasn’t a Randy Johnson, Curt Schilling, Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Dwight Gooden type of starter.


As part of filming the Jimmy Fallon movie "Fever Pitch," pitcher Chris Young made a September start in a Fenway Park set up to pretend it was opening day.
