Kaz Matusi against the Atlanta Braves in the 2004 season It's never happened. Matsui hit home runs in his first at bat of the 2004, 2005, and 2006 seasons. In the 2004 game, Matsui went 3 for 3 with a HR, 2 doubles and a walk. Ken Griffey Jr. is the only other player in MLB history to hit home runs in his first at bat in three consecutive seasons.

No true rookie has ever done it. Karl "Tuffy" Rhodes hit three homers against Dwight Gooden on opening day in 1994, but Tuffy had been up and down the majors for several years with the Astros and Cubs. Tuffy had only 313 plate appearances when he took Gooden deep, but "technically" he was not a rookie.

7 innings to a average game. the vistor bats first until three outs are resached, then the home team bats until three outs are reached. that completes one inning.

The MLB National League rookie home run record is jointly held by Wally Berger, who knocked 38 out of the park in his first season with the Boston Braves in 1930, and by Frank Robinson, who matched that feat in his debut with the Cincinatti Reds in 1956. Berger was 25 when he set the mark, older than the average rookie. Robinson was 21.

the top of the inning is the first three outs in an inning. an inning has a total of six outs, three outs for each team. each team takes as many at-bats as they can get before they get three outs in their half of the inning. then the other team gets at-bats until they get three outs. after that, the inning is over. ============================================ The home team gets "home field advantage." In baseball, the visiting team bats first and the home team bats last. The advantage to batting last is that the visiting team does not get another chance to take the lead if the home team is ahead after the visiting team has batted in the ninth inning, or if the home team takes the lead during its turn at bat in the ninth inning. The home team always gets the last chance to tie or win the game in the ninth inning or extra innings. The "top" of the inning refers to the visiting team being at bat. The "bottom" of the inning refers to the home team being at bat.

Batting first is determined by a coin toss. winner picks home or visitor.
