It’s Opening Day for Major League Baseball, and history is being made.
Thankfully for Oklahoma fans, the Sooners are right in the middle of it.
Three former Oklahoma pitchers — Jon Gray (Colorado Rockies), Chase Anderson (Milwaukee Brewers) and Garrett Richards (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) — were all named starting pitchers on Thursday for their respective teams.
Per Oklahoma Baseball, it’s the first time in MLB history that three pitchers out of the same school have all started on opening day.
MLB history will be made as three pitchers from the same college start on opening day for the first time ever.
