Johan Santana throws the first no hitter in Mets history and a fan is tackled on the field!

After 51 years, Johan Santana threw the first no hitter in the history of the New York Mets Friday night.  While that moment is amazing on its own merit, this screengrab of one happy Mets fan trying to join the celebration and being tackled by security surely makes the moment even sweeter.  It’s so great to have the baseball traditions of fans being tackled by security and celebrating a no hitter together in this one image.  Fans storming the field to celebrate the biggest moments in your team’s history was so much easier back in the day.

Update: Thankfully, SI’s Jimmy Traina came through with video…
