Sunday is Seaver bobblehead day
Passing along this note from the Mets:
Hall of Famer Tom Seaver earned his first Major League victory during his illustrious career 45 years ago tomorrow (April 20, 1967), when he went 7 1/3 innings to turn back the Chicago Cubs, 6-1, at Shea Stadium. Seaver had five strikeouts, including one of Ernie Banks. The first 25,000 fans attending Sunday’s 1:10 p.m. game against the Giants can reminisce about Seaver’s accomplishments when they receive a Tom Seaver bobblehead presented by Citi. The Seaver bobblehead is the first of a series of five which also features: Rusty Staub, Keith Hernandez, Edgardo Alfonzo and Mike Piazza as the Mets honor their 50th Anniversary.
