Tom Seaver was the big star on this day. He pitched a complete game in a 2-1 win over the eventual National League Champions. Tom allowed only five hits, all of them singles.
It was Seaver himself who provided the margin of victory. In the seventh inning, he broke a 1-1 tie by hitting a home run over the left field wall. Pete Rose just looked up helplessly as the ball sailed out. Tom Terrific had won his own ball game!
This game was played on Father's Day. I don't know if this is true, but it might have been Tom's first one since becoming a father for the first time. Whether it was or not, he had a great day in more ways than one.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
