<b>2006 Baseball Season Begins Tonight!</b>

It has been quite some time since Baseball has seen such a large crop of highly touted young stars and rookie prospects. 2006 is starting with a very large crop of rookies starting on opening day.

The other top rookies with high expectations for 2006 include Delmon Young (Tampa Bay), Matt Cain (Giants), Prince Fielder (Brewers), Ian Kinsler (Rangers), Justin Verlander (Detroit), Jon Papelbon (Red Sox), Brian Anderson (White Sox), Anderson Hernandez (Mets), Francisco Liriano (Twins), Hanley Ramirez (Mariners), Josh Barfield (Padres), Paul Maholm (Pirates), Josh Willingham Mike Jacobs (Marlins) and Scott Olsen (Marlins) are just a few of this years rookies expected to make a big splash right away.

A couple of other top prospects that will be IPO'd on ThePit.com soon include Jeff Mathis of the Angels and Kenji Johjina of the Mariners with the release of his cards later this year. Collectors should also keep their eye out for other top prospects that are expected to be called up later in the year. Lastings Milledge and Brian Bannister of the Mets, Stephen Drew and Carlos Quentin of the Diamondbacks. The Dodgers have 5 highly touted prospects that are expected to see some big league action this year - Andy Laroche, Joel Guzman, Delwyn Young, Chad Billingsley and Russ Martin. Boston's Minor League Pitcher of the year Jon Lester is also expected to be a mid-season call up as are the highly touted Melky Cabrera and Eric Duncan of the New York Yankees.
