Well Pete had a memorable "first game" that's for sure:

April 9, 1963 - The start of the season found the Sox in Detroit and it was a highlight game for 3rd baseman Pete Ward. Ward smacked a 7th inning, three run home run off Jim Bunning to push the Sox into the lead and he also made a barehanded pick up and throw out of a slow roller hit by Al Kaline. The Sox would win 7-5 and it would be the start of Ward’s Co-American League Rookie of the Year campaign.
