Anniversary of Tom Seaver Awesomeness

Once again, Chris Jaffe at The Hardball Times comes up with a report of some past Reds greatness:

Thirty years ago today Seaver tossed a complete game shutout. But this was a special shutout, unique among the 61 in his 61 career. You see, he not only prevented the opponents from scoring, but he also hammered a home run against them. It’s the only time Seaver combined a home run and shutout in one game.

There are a couple other Reds-related tidbits in the story. Give it a click and check it out.
