Notes

Rakuten: Norimoto became just the second player since 1950 to start opening day games in three consecutive seasons, beginning with his rookie year. The other was Tadashi Sugiura between 1958 and 1960. Source: Sponichi 3/27/2015

Nippon Ham: Kuriyama became the first manager in franchise history to record an opening day victory in four straight seasons. ... Otani topped out at 159km/h. At twenty years and eight months, he became the fifth pitcher under twenty-one in franchise history to start an opening day game, first since Yu Darvish at twenty years and seven months in 2007. He became the second youngest player in franchise history to record an opening day victory. Hiroshi Tsuno recorded victories at nineteen years and eight months in 1985 and twenty years and seven months in 1986. He became the fourth pitcher under twenty-one to record an opening day victory in Pacific League history: Takao Kajimoto at eighteen years and eleven months in 1954; Keishi Suzuki at nineteen years and six months in 1967; and Tsuno twice. Source: Sanspo 3/28/2015, Nikkan Sports 3/28/2015
