Braves catcher Joe Torre hits two opening day homers in ’65. Next season on opening day, again on April 12th, Torre once more hits two homers. With his two homers in ’66 he joins teammate Eddie Mathews as the only Major Leaguers to have two two-homer games on opening day. Torre, of course, will go on to a Hall of Fame managing career leading the Yankees to 4 World Series championships, 3 of them in consecutive years (1998-2000). Mathews will be elected to the Hall on the strength of his 512 career homers.
