* Nolan Ryan's debut & 1st career strikeout
* New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves
* Major league baseball - MLB
This 92 page newspaper has a two column headline on page 62: "Mets Bow to Braves" with smaller subheads that include: "Ryan Makes His Debut". The text includes: "For the Mets, the most noteworthy feature of an unproductive day was the debut of Nolan Ryan...."
As you can see within the box scores, a pitcher named 'Ryan' pitched 2 innings in relief for the Mets. This was Nolan Ryan's major league debut. His first ever career strikeout was made in this game as well against Pat Jarvis, pitcher for the Braves. Great to have in this famous NYC title.
