WASHINGTON - APRIL 05: Roy Halladay #34 of the Philadelphia Phillies pitches against the Washington Nationals on Opening Day at Nationals Park on April 5, 2010 in Washington, DC.

See what Andrew Salciunas found in The Audio Vault today! Every day Andrew dives deep into the Vault to pull out audio relevant to the day to play for Anthony Gargano. And after we saw the much-anticipated debut of Trea Turner yesterday, Andrew dedicated today’s Vault to other great debuts in Philadelphia sports history. The times we couldn’t wait to see someone play, and it more than lived up to the hype. He pulled 7 great debuts, plus what Trea Turner did yesterday.

Trea Turner’s debut did not go quite as planned sadly. Phillies coughed up a 5-0 lead in the 4th inning. 9 total runs crossed the plate for the Rangers that inning. 5 courtesy of Aaron Nola. The Phillies were never able to claw back and ended up losing on Opening Day. But for Trea Turner it went somewhat well. He was responsible for 1 of the 7 runs the Phillies scored when his triple drove Brandon Marsh in.

Nothing earth-shattering.  But enough to get us excited about what Trea Turner can do in the next 161 games. Phillies may have lost, but Trea at least looked the part in his first game.

But there are 7 great debuts that Andrew found in the Vault to play for us today. The times when guys came in right away, and made a splash.

Here is what Andrew used in the Audio Vault today…

  • Eric Lindros Scores in His Debut

    Eric Lindros had an interesting debut. It started with a trip to the penalty box. But he also showed off his skill as well as his size. He got his first NHL Goal on a Power Play in his first game with the Flyers.

  • Allen Iverson Puts op 30 Points in His First NBA Game

    Allen Iverson made himself known right away. In his first ever game he racked up 30 points. The first of many 30-point games for the Sixers guard. And Andrew played the audio of this “Mini-Movie” about his amazing NBA Debut.

  • McNabb Find Owens for a TD Right Away In Their First Game Together in Pre-season

    Terrell Owen’s time in Philly started and ended with a bang. Things fell apart after just one season. But man that one season was magical. And in the first game of the Pre-Season, McNabb, and TO immediately connected. On the first play TO took it 81 yards to the house. If only the duos off the field chemistry were half as good as their on-field connection.

  • Jim Thome Clubs Two Home Runs in Phillies Debut

    Jim Thome did not waste any time endearing himself to Phillies fans. he hit not one, but two home runs in his first game with the Phillies.

  • Cliff Lee Does it All In His First Game With Phillies

    Cliff Lee made quite a statement in his first game with the Phillies. He carried a no-hitter deep into the game, and then went the distance holding the Giants to just 1 run. The start of an amazing run that helped carry them all the way to the World Series.

  • AJ Brown Immediately Finds Chemistry with Jalen Hurts

    AJ Brown had a hell of a first game with the Eagles. He and Jalen Hurts were constantly connecting, especially in the first half. He fin wished with 155 yards, helping the Eagles beat the Lions.


  • Roy Halladay Fans 9 in his Phillies Debut

    Much like Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay was not messing around in his Phillies debut. He gave up just 1 run over 7 innings and fanned 9 Nationals hitters. The start of a great season that saw him win Cy Young, throw a perfect game, and later a no-hitter in the playoffs.
