This day in baseball history: Seaver’s game of K’s

Great baseball history, I’m a huge fan of Tom Seaver. This was blogged by The Baseball Attic.

On 22 April 1970, during the pregame ceremony, New York Mets pitcher Tom Seaver was presented with the 1969 Cy Young award.  In the game that followed, Seaver struck out a record ten consecutive batters as he led the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres.  He struck out nineteen total hitters over the course of the game, which tied another Major League record.  Even better, four of those batters struck out looking.

I guess Seaver didn’t want to leave any doubt that he really did deserve that Cy Young, eh?
