What lefty had the most games started in the American League? What right-handed pitcher had the most games started in the National League? The answers, and DOZENS of additional games started records are on Baseball Almanac .

Did you know that Tom Seaver has started more Opening Day games than any other pitcher in Major League history? The Hall of Fame hurler finished his amazing career with sixteen Opening Day starting assignments!

An odd pair: Will White , who is not in the top one-hundred, and Pud Galvin , who is in the top 20, both hold the Major League record for games started during a single season .
