RIP TOM SEAVER (FULL MEMORIAL)

As I looked at the news, I could now believe my eyes. It was right there. It says "Legendary Pitcher, Tom Seaver, Dies At 75". Even though I have never personally seen him pitch, a quick look at his baseball-reference page will tell you that he is a living legend. Not just a legend. A superhero that plays baseball.


He didn't just play baseball. He loved what he did. He always did it well. Click on this link to find one of his last public appearances. He was diagnosed with Dementia on March 7, 2019 and this appearance went live on YouTube just 2 days after.


In total, he played for the Mets, Reds, White Sox, and Red Sox. He had a 2.21 ERA and 25 Wins to lead the Miracle Mets to a World Series title. He was successful wherever he went, tearing up the big leagues en route to a huge list of accomplishments:

• Hall Of Fame

• 3x Cy Young

• Rookie Of The Year

• 12x All Star

• 1969 World Series

• 3x ERA Title

• 109.9 WAR

• 2.86 ERA

• 311-205 Record

• 12 HR, 28 2B, 108 BB, 2x PH


Tom Seaver's legacy will always live on as one of the best players to ever play the game. He is the best Mets player of all time, standing next to players such as David Wright and Dwight Gooden.
