Coming into the 2012 season, Mets fans had a whirl wind of questions about their star pitcher, Johan Santana, who missed all of the 2011 season because of a shoulder injury on his pitching arm. After the surgery, which was required, many questioned if Johan would ever pitch at the level he had reached while in his prime. Well, after a great start to the season, posting a 3-2 record with only 2.38 ERA, Santana did something that no pitcher has ever done in the history of the New York Mets; pitched a no hitter. With great pitchers that have passed through the franchise such as Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, and Doc Gooden, it is quite a surprise that this has never been accomplished in team history, but Johan got the job done against the St. Louis Cardinals.
