#BiggestYankeeFanInMineola is heartbroken to hear about the passing of one of my All-Time favorite pitchers and the absolute BEST player in not only NY Mets history, but in my opinion, (After Sandy Koufax) the best pitcher in baseball history from 1969-today. THE BEST. If I could start a team with any pitcher I’ve ever seen in my lifetime, Tom Seaver would be my 1st pick. I had the great pleasure of meeting Tom once and a really great thing happened. He wasn’t in a great mood, so I told him a GREAT story about a day I went to Shea to see him pitch when I was a kid and he literally burst out laughing hysterically! He let out such a roar of laughter and was in a great mood after that, which made my day meeting him feel even more special! The Mets were a lovable laughing stock from their inception in 1962, until Seaver showed up in 1967. Almost immediately, “The Franchise” instantly made the Mets a respectable team with his incredible talent and his will to succeed and be the best. He quickly became the team’s leader and driving force of their 1969 Miracle Mets World Series Championship, defeating the heavily favored Baltimore Orioles, which to this day, may be the most unbelievable baseball championship in history. A winner, a gentleman and an absolute class act. In the 1973 World Series against the A’s, Reggie Jackson said, “Blind men come to the park just to hear him pitch.” RIP #41 You were THE BEST. #tomseaver #rip #thefranchise #thebest #mets #metsbaseball #41 #riptomseaver #bestmetever #classact #hero #pitcher #greatness #legend #baseballlegend #greatman #biggestyankeefaninmineola

*** Tom Seaver died *** *** Tom Seaver age ** *** Tom Seaver family *** *** Tom Seaver Mets NBC *** *** Tom Seaver death *** *** Tom Seaver news today *** *** Tom Seaver death news *** Former New York Mets pitcher Tom Seaver, who was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992, died on Monday. He was 75. The Baseball Hall of Fame and ESPN reported that his death was due to Lewy body dementia and COVID complications. “We are heartbroken to share that our beloved husband and father has passed away,” his wife Nancy and two daughters shared with the National Baseball Hall of Fame, who announced his death Wednesday. “We send our love out to his fans, as we mourn his loss with you.” Seaver played major league baseball from 1968 to 1986, and alongside the “Miracle Mets,” he went on to win the World Series in 1969. Over the course of his career, he also played with the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox, accumulating a total of 311 wins and 205 losses. Following his baseball career, Seaver shifted to broadcast television, covering both the New York Yankees and Mets for NBC. He also became a WPIX analyst, focusing on the Yankees from 1989 to 1993 and the Mets from 1999 to 2005. Along with his wife, he established the Seaver Family Vineyard in 2002. It is located on his estate in Calistoga, Calif. The Mets retired his No. 41 jersey number in 1988, making it the first to ever be retired by the team. A statement posted to the Mets’ Twitter account reads “Beyond the multitude of awards, records, accolades, world series championship, all-star appearances, and just overall brilliance, we will always remember Tom for his passion and devotion to his family, the game of baseball and his vineyard.” In 2019, Seaver’s family announced that he would be retiring from his public life to deal with his diagnosis of dementia. He continued to work in his vineyard through this time. Seaver is survived by his wife, two daughters, and four grandchildren.
