Tom Terrific! The Franchise!

So many great memories of this one in a million talent!

And due to corona related causes, no less. :(

The man was LADEN with talent! As I know about thirty other teams thought... the guy would have looked so good in an Indians jersey!

One of the greatest pitchers of my generation for sure. Another life taken by COVID but the truth is, he had been suffering for some time with Lewy Body dementia, a kind of slow death of its own from all I've read. RIP Tom Terrific

Sad to hear.
If the Mets could've hung on to Nolan Ryan they would have been a force together for another decade!

Seaver had been suffering from dementia.

When you add the corona virus on top of that.....

He was about as close as you could get to baseball royalty back in the 70's.

The Mets, Jets and Knicks made 1969 a year to remember in Hew York.

No scandals. No controversies. Just a guy who went to the mound every fourth or fifth day and racked up the strikeouts and wins.

300+ wins and 3600+ strikeouts. I seriously doubt if you will see any right-handed starting pitchers in today's game come close to what Tom Terrific accomplished.

Rest in peace.
