Tuesday, June 1 marks the ninth anniversary of Johan Santana’s no-hitter — the first, and still the only, in Mets history.
“He struck him out…it has happened.”
A tremendous game and a sensational moment — it’s still the only no-hitter the Mets have recorded.
Nine years later, Santana is no longer in the league nor has thrown a major league pitch since that season. Regardless, the four-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young Award-winner is celebrating the anniversary of his tremendous accomplishment…by taking part in youth baseball batting practice.
This is how I'm celebrating my 9th anniversary of that no-hitter. Believe it! THANK YOU👍🏽🤗
