Join Mets Rewind and Help End ALZ

Writing and sharing history requires accuracy and a commitment to pursue the truth. To build an audience around Mets history is more than just sharing Top 10 lists and historical statistics; it is rooted in YOU, the Mets fan.

When Tom Seaver, the greatest player in franchise history, announced in March that he would not be attending the 50th Anniversary celebration of the 1969 World Series team, I was disappointed. When I read why, I was heartbroken.

Seaver, who has been struggling with Lyme Disease, has now been diagnosed with early onset dementia. My father lost his battle to this crippling disease just over two years ago. I know what is ahead for the entire Seaver family. This is so far beyond baseball.

First, my dad, then my childhood hero. I have decided to make an effort to use Mets Rewind to honor my father and one of the games all-time greats.

The Seaver family released a statement through the Baseball Hall of Fame saying:

“Tom will continue to work in his beloved vineyard at his California home, but has chosen to completely retire from public life. The family is deeply appreciative of those who have supported Tom throughout his career, on and off the field, and who do so now by honoring his request for privacy.”
