1976 HEADLINE: Andre Dawson Makes His Major League Debut

On this day in 1976, Andre Nolan Dawson made his major league debut.

On the road with his teammates, the Expos were in Pittsburgh to take on the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Dawson got the start in right field for the Expos and batted eighth in the lineup.

He went hitless in his debut, going 0-for-2 with a strikeout and being pulled in the top of the seventh inning for a pinch-hitter.

It may not have been the start he had wished for, but it was a start in the big leagues!!!

Happy Anniversary ‘Hawk’!!!
