I want Randolph to start Julio Franco on Friday

On May 14th, 1984 Roger Clemens made his Major League Debut in Cleveland. Julio Franco was the Indians shorstop that game and went 1-for-4.

This also raises the question of has a hitter and pitcher ever faced each other in the Majors more than 23 years after their initial meeting?

Greg Maddux made his ML debut 2 years later. Nobody from Houston's starting lineup that faced him has been active in over a decade.

Actually, with the game being in an AL ballpark, Franco could be the DH.
