After hitting just one homer from 1992 to 1995 and later sitting out the entire 1999 season, Kevin Elster smacked three home runs in the first game as San Franciscos’ Pac Bell park on April 11, 2000. Elster connected in the third and fifth inning against Kirk Reuter and in the eighth against Felix Rodriguez, leading the Dodgers to a 6-5 win.

My take – Awesome Trivia!! If you were to ask me this question, and even tell me the year, Kevin Elster would not be in my top 500 choices…
