Baseball Trivia on Fay's Blog

Fay posted an interesting bit of trivia on his blog today.

Who was the first pitcher to defeat all 30 current MLB Teams?  Apparently, this had several beat writers stumped in Pittsburgh for quite some time.

Multiple posters chimed in with Al Leiter.  Fay confirms that Leiter is the correct answer.  One reader adds that Kevin Brown, Terry Mullholland, and Curt Schilling all achieved the same feat after Leiter.

One problem.  That's not right.  Leiter was the first guy to beat all 30 current franchises, but he never beat the Washington Nationals, a current MLB team.  Similarly, Brown, Mullholland, and Schilling all beat the Expos (thus, all 30 franchises), but have not beaten the Nationals.  So, none of those guys have beaten all 30 current MLB teams.

One guy has.  Name him.
