    [FONT= 'Times New Roman']NEW YORK, NY –[/FONT][FONT= 'Times New Roman'] On June 1, 2012 at Flushing’s Citi Field, ace [/FONT][FONT= 'Times New Roman']Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in franchise history when he blanked the St. Louis Cardinals and shocked Metsfans on a magical, unforgettable night. Featuring close calls, gutty pitches and terrific defense, this Friday night thriller takes a prominent place as one of the greatest moments in Mets history. [/FONT]And, on July 10, Major League Baseball Productions and A+E Networks Home Entertainment will anoint it as such when they release BASEBALL’S GREATEST GAMES: NEW YORK METS FIRST NO-HITTER. A must-have for Mets fans everywhere, it will be available [FONT= 'Times New Roman']at Mets.com, and will be in stores, including the Mets Team Store, beginning July 10 for $12.95srp[/FONT].[FONT= 'Times New Roman'][/FONT]

    [FONT= 'Times New Roman']Coming off a season lost to shoulder injury, Santana would throw the most breathless of games in the 8,020th regular season game in the history of the Mets. Ironically, the franchise known for its all-time roster of pitching greats had never recorded a no-hitter. [/FONT]One-hitters filled the Club’s history books, and the 35 oh-so-close gems spun by familiar legends were wrapped up in onehistoric start from Santana. Back in 1962 at the Polo Grounds, Al Jackson tossed the Mets first one-hitter. In 1970 over a span of 28 days, Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan and Gary Gentry each held the opposition to one hit. The list of one-hit wonders would go on: Dwight Gooden and David Cone, Terry Leach’s 10-inning one-hitter and Steve Trachsel’s two one-hitters in the same year. Fifty years of tantalizingly close performances – making Santana’s achievement all the more gratifying.
