Sept. 3, 2002: Andy Van Hekken’s Debut Gem

From Baseball-Reference.com:

On this date in 2002, Tigers lefty Andy Van Hekken, with a fastball topping out in the mid-80s, becomes the first American Leaguer to throw a complete game shutout in his debut since Mike Norris in 1975, and the first Tiger since Schoolboy Rowe in 1933. He stops Cleveland 4 – 0. The Holland, Mich., native was 5 – 0 at Toledo before his promotion.

The Tigers leadoff hitter that day? None other than Hiram Bocachica.
