Meet the Mets
Tom Seaver’s family announced that the legendary Met is suffering from dementia and he will be retiring from public life.
The 1969 Mets will be honored at Citi Field this season, and Seaver’s former teammates really wish he could be there to join them.
Even though he won’t be at the ceremony, his presence will still be felt throughout the organization.
Even the current Mets know what Tom Terrific has meant to the organization and they sent their love to the ailing Met.
With all Seaver has meant to the Mets, it is time to give him a statue at Citi Field.
Seaver’s dominance is still unrivaled in Mets’ history and he will forever remain an essential Met. He brought many fantastic moments to a fledgling franchise that will now be kept alive in the memories of others.
