Re: Q&A: CJ Nitkowski and Jeff Pearlman
CJ Nitkowski pitched in the very first game I ever attended in 1998. He was with Houston at the time...can't remember if he started or came in in relief. I can, however, tell you that Mike Remlinger started for the Reds. Craig Biggio and Barry Larkin hit homeruns in an (I want to say) 8-1 Reds win.
June of 1998.
For some reason, CJ Nitkowski will always hold a small piece of my sporting heart.
