The Revenge of Holy Macaroni

More interesting stats from some of yesterday's small market games (courtesy Lee Sinins):

The Royals set a team record for attendance at a home opener--41,575. (it's amazing that they didn't get that when they had George Brett)

The Royals became the 1st team since the 1901 Tigers to come back from at least a 4 run deficit in the 9th inning to win on Opening Day.

Jason Johnson, AL Levine, Jamie Walker and Esteban Yan combined to give the Tigers their first Opening Day shutout since Mickey Lolich shut out the Senators in 1970. For once the Tigers are on the right end of a shutout.

Yesterday was the first time in modern history that 2 walkoff HRs were hit on Opening Day. Carlos Beltran and Shannon Stewart did it.
