Another Opening Day

Red Sox Captain Jason Varitek now needs four more opening day starts to catch up with Yaz.

Jason Varitek will make his eighth straight start at catcher on Opening Day, a Red Sox record for that position. Only four Boston players have made more consecutive starts at the same position. Carl Yastrzemski started 12 straight openers in left field from 1961-92, Harry Hooper started 10 straight openers in right field from 1911-20, Wade Boggs started at third 10 straight times from 1982-92 and Jim Rice started in left nine straight times from 1980 through 1988.
