Trivia
San Diego Padres center fielder Jody Gerut led off the first game at Citi Field with a home run, making it the only park to open with a homer (minimum 300 games). Johan Santana's no-hitter was the first ever thrown by a Mets pitcher and occurred in the team's 51st season and 8,020th game, which was the longest drought any franchise had endured before recording its first no-hitter. It took only three more years before the second no-hitter was thrown at Citi Field and the third was thrown less than four months later.
