Hitters reigned supreme on Opening Day, bringing an abundance of offense that made it a pleasant day for BTS participants.
Fourteen of the 15 Top players selected collected at least one hit, with only Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee (0-for-3) showing up empty-handed to the party. That output allowed a huge chunk of fans to extend their season-opening streaks to two games.
That may not seem like much, but remember, the Roman Empire was built one brick at a time, so keep those picks coming.
