Mets Through the Years: The All-Star(s), 1967
July 9th, 2012 by slangon

1967 saw the emergence of Tom Seaver as a perennial All-Star. It was the first of the 12 All-Star teams that he was part of. He also won Rookie of the year that season, going 16-13 with a 2.76 ERA and 170 strikeouts.

He entered the game in the 9th inning with the N.L. holding a slim 2-1 lead. He got Tony Conigliaro to fly out, walked Carl Yastrzemski, got Bill Freehan to fly out and struck out Ken Berry to secure the win. I guess that technically gave him the save, although that didn’t become an official stat until 2 years later.
