Opening Day plunks

As you might expect, below is a list of everybody who ever got hit by a pitch in an Opening Day Brewers game. But, not just Opening Day, but the Brewers home openers as well. Because that's like having 2 opening days in years when they start on the road, right? Rickie Weeks' 6 opening day plunks lead that category over the span of time the Brewers have existed. (Also, the Seattle Pilots are included).
