The Black Diamonds opened on the road, traveling to Rochester for a three game set with the Beau Brummels. In large part due to left fielder, his team took the series 2-1, behind his 3 home runs and 8 RBI. On the season, Bonds is batting .357 and slugging 1.000.
- The most exciting opening day contest was the 13 inning affair between Bostons Terrier and Planet 10. Trailing by a run heading into the 8th, the visiting Planet 10 tied the score on a 2-out pinch hit Terry Pendleton single. The score stayed knotted at four apeice for the next four frames. Finally, the bottom of the 13th yielded a run thanks to a lead off Ricky Henderson walk, a sacrifice bunt, and a time Lou Whitaker double. Interestingly, Whitaker entered the game in the 8th, replacing the star Rogers Hornsby for defensive reasons.
- The best pitching performance of Day 1 was a 3-hit shutout of the Traveling All Stars by Garland Braxton. His DC Chips won 6 nothing, behind Braxton's 5 K, 4 BB, 114 pitch performance.
- While it's almost laughable to mention, owners of the All Stars, Fishbiscuits, and Death Speakers are undoubtedly at least a little concerned with their starts. Outscored by 18, 21, and 27 runs respectively, each team is 0-3 and haven't competed in any one contest.
