On Sunday July 29, 2007, Tom Glavine of the New York Mets became the 22nd pitcher in Major League history to win 300 games.

Mayor Mike Bloomberg who declared, "I'm a New York baseball fan," invited Glavine to City Hall and presented him with the Key to New York City on Tuesday, August 7. On Sunday August 12, the Mets held a special ceremony at home plate prior to the Mets-Florida Marlins game to celebrate Glavine's place in baseball history. Glavine was joined by his parents, his wife and children and his two brothers and their families.

Glavine is the first New York Met player to achieve this feat and only the fifth lefthander in Major League Baseball history ever to ring up 300 victories.- Dan Miller
