Yesterday's HR by Jerry Hairston, Jr. was the first HR hit by a "non-regular" this season.

Only 3 "non-regulars" have OBPs over .300: Hairston (.367), Freel (.347), and Hopper (.320) and only one -- Hairston (.517) has a SLG above .400.

Considering a team only carries 5 non-regulars, that isn't very surprising.
