On This Date In History: Tom Terrific gets 300

On August 4, 1985, Tom Seaver of the Chicago White Sox, pitched his 300th career victory in his 19th season. He is the 17th major league pitcher to accomplish this achievement. In 1966, Seaver was signed by the National League’s NY Mets. Three years later, he compiled a 25-7 win-loss record and helped the Mets capture the World Series. He was traded to the Cincinnati Reds in 1977, joined the Mets again in 1982, and signed with the Chicago White Sox in 1983. Nicknamed “Tom Terrific,” he finished with a career total of 311 wins, a .603 winning percentage, and 3,640 strikeouts. He was inducted in to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. Uhm….How great are these cards?!
