2. August 21: Jeff Wallace (1996), Pittsburgh Pirates

June 7: José Santiago made nine relief appearances for the Lugnuts to start the year before skyrocketing up to become the first ever Nut to reach the Major Leagues. How did he debut? By recording the final out of a 10-4 Royals victory over the Texas Rangers, dispatching Dean Palmer with a popout to second base. Santiago went on to pitch 229 games in the Major Leagues for four teams, finishing with four relief appearances for the New York Mets in 2005.

September 14: Carlos Beltrán and Carlos Febles debut in a 16-6 rout of the Oakland Athletics that sees the host Royals pile up 19 hits and score in every inning. (The A's feature a young Eric Chavez and Miguel Tejada alongside Rickey Henderson, who swats one of his MLB career record 81 leadoff home runs, and Jason Giambi, who belts a three-run homer.) 21-year-old Beltrán comes in to replace RF Larry Sutton defensively in the seventh inning, playing center field, which moves Johnny Damon over to right.

The game lasted 15 innings before the American League walked off, 4-3, on a Young sacrifice fly. Mármol, who had first played with the Nuts as a weak-hitting catcher before converting to pitching, was at the height of his nine-year career, even receiving MVP votes in 2007 for his relief work.
