Kaz Matusi against the Atlanta Braves in the 2004 season It's never happened. Matsui hit home runs in his first at bat of the 2004, 2005, and 2006 seasons. In the 2004 game, Matsui went 3 for 3 with a HR, 2 doubles and a walk. Ken Griffey Jr. is the only other player in MLB history to hit home runs in his first at bat in three consecutive seasons.
