UTR Hitters of the Day – Opening Day – April 6, 2017

Welcome to UTRMinors.com Opening Day 2017, Hitters portion. 

Fresh off a successful off-season where Jim and I cranked out our largest undertaking yet, we’re ready to get things rolling for another regular season, our fourth here at the site. 

Upon scanning over this year’s Opening Day edition, you won’t notice any changes from last season. However, I’m working on something new that may help not only streamline the work, but help expand my coverage, and make it easier for readers to 1) read the information and; 2) (possibly) chart the information for your own reference. It’s a work-in-progress so look for that coming up soon.

Right out of the gate, you’ll see several familiar names and one, now multi-sport enigma, making his debut in quite exciting fashion. Let’s get right to it shall we. Enjoy the season folks.
