It seems like Kaz, Fukudome, Hideki, Ichiro, Agbayani, and Shinjo all broke out on opening day. Kaz homered in the first at-bat of the season in his first two seasons. Fukudome just homered on opening day. I'm pretty sure Agbayani and Shinjo also homered opening day.
Shinjo!! I read that guy became a male nude model after he retired back to Japan.
More on topic, Barry Bonds was a pretty crazy opening day hitter from about 01-04, but then that's not quite the same as Nady...
