Growing up in the early 70’s as a teenager, Tom Seaver was my Favorite player and who I tried my best to emulate on the mound when pitching. I loved his full windup and power. He was a classy man as much as he was a great pitcher. My thoughts and prayers are with the Seaver Family and I appreciate you allowing Mr Seaver’s fans to pass on our condolences. RIP Tom, the baseball world has lost the greatest pitcher I ever saw. God Bless

When I was a kid, I met Tom Seaver. I asked if he would sign my baseball card, which he did gladly, all smiles. Instead of signing and being on his way, he took time to stand there chatting with me. What I will always remember was his extraordinary kindness and the respect that he showed me, this pesky 10 year old kid and total stranger. It was one of the shining moments of my youth and a lesson in humility that I carry with me to this day.
May God grant Tom Seaver eternal rest, and bless and comfort his family and friends.

I grew up a huge Braves and Hank Aaron fan ( as did Tom ) so I'm still mad at him for beating the Braves in the very first NLCS in 1969! Seriously, one of my favorite players to watch and one that I admired greatly as a person. Prayers for his loved ones, especially his beloved Nancy!

In 1965 I had the pleasure of being a teammate of Tom's at USC. My pro career fell short of the major leagues but my feelings about this great man are of major league stature. We all knew that his talent was amazing, but he was the kind of person that always made us feel important. When the Dedeaux Foundation honored Tom, I was chosen to drive him around for the weekend. A memory I will always cherish. A great talent, whose character overshadowed his ability as a player. To his loving family, you completed his life...we were lucky to share a moment. Fight On!!

I went to high school with his daughter Anne and was fortunate enough to meet Tom in person. I remember talking about Jeopardy with him one time and shared a laugh or two, but decades later, I can still remember him being as personable and disarming off the field as he was a competitor on the field. I am also a lifelong Mets fan and always smiled when I saw the retired #41 jersey painted on the outfield fence at Shea Stadium and Citi Field when I attended games. Saddened to hear the news.

Posted by Mark Bershatsky - Arlington, VA   September 09, 2020

To the Seaver Family,

Tom was a big part of my growing up in the 70s. Almost every Sunday home game, my Dad took me ( and sometimes my older sister) to see a game. A few times, I was thrilled that Tom was pitching.

Tom was a fantastic pitcher but an even better man ( not that I need to tell you).

My heartfelt condolences. May all the wonderful memories give you peace and comfort.

by Ruth Esther Gilmore

this morning i watched hope flutter by
on the wings of a monarch butterfly

and per definition it landed on the window sill
of my wounded bleeding heart

a never-ending blast of warmth
spread itself through the curtains

of my soul deleting at will
my pain i had started

to believe i would never lose the pain again
where can i hide to avoid the next silent arrow?

how should i deal with loss? how can
i find happiness without you? i

can only smile and remember our shared past
and be thankful that i knew you

What an amazing life and career you had. To Nancy and the Seaver Family. As a child growing up in the 1960's, I would run home from High School to put on the TV so I can catch one of Tom's games. He was a kid inside who loved the game of baseball and yet, he was a grown man doing his job. Tom made this world a better place for you and all of us. Now God has him. May you continue to have the faith that will carry you all through this time. God Bless the Seaver Family and may God Bless Tom.

i'M FROM CHICAGO, NOT NEW YORK. A WHITE SOX FAN NOT THE METS. BUT I RECOGNIZE TRUE GREATNESS WHEN I SEE IT. THAT WAS TOM SEAVER. I LOVED IT WHEN HE WAS ON THE WHITE SOX, WHERE HE GOT HIS 300TH WIN. I REFERRED TO HIS DIRT SPOT ON THE KNEE OF HIS UN INFORM WHEN I WAS COACHING LITTLE LEAGUE, TELLING THE BOYS ABOUT HIM. SAW AN MLB DOCUMENTARY ABOUT LAST FALL AND EVEN MY WIFE WAS IN AWE OF HIM. THE WORLD OF BASEBALL SHOULD BE SAD. THE WORLD OF SPORTS SHOULD BE SAD. I KNOW I AM. WE LOST A GREAT ONE.

Un-doubtedly, the late G.T. ("Tom(my) Terrific") Seaver rates along with Baseball's greatest pitchers. With 300+ victories/3,500 strikeouts, by far, he was an icon. He had a couple of stints with Mets, the 1st one was when he led that club from laughable lovers to a pair of World Series appearances, 4 seasons apart (1969/1973). He was also a 3-time N.L. Cy Young Award winner/4 times in his 1 stint with the Mets he won 20 or more games in a season. He shall be sorely missed. May he R.I.P.

Mr Seaver. My childhood idle who made me a Mets fan for life. Watching that 1969 Miracle Mets season and beyond was an absolute thrill. Oh the championships that may have been had our management not traded future hall of famers and other future stars Seaver, Koosman, Ryan and Matlack would've been tough to beat you pitched against many other HO F pitchers, should've won a couple more Cy Young's than the 3 you brought home, striking out ten in a row, and the last ten at that just unbelievable. One of two pitchers with 3500 Ks, 300 wins and an ERA under three - WOW Thanks for the memories and rest in peace Mr. Seaver. Forever #41.

This loss hurts. My mom and I watched Tom on our little black and white tv while I was growing up. We never missed a game when he was pitching. When I think of Tom, I remember my mom and my childhood. I had other sports heroes growing up in The Bronx, but no one ever came close to The Franchise. He was the epitome of class. Rest in peace, Tom. You were one of a kind, the greatest pitcher I ever saw, but an even finer man.

Posted by Bob Lamb - Friend   September 06, 2020

Tom Seaver was a great player and a class person. He brought so many thrills and joys to all sports fans. As a kid, I would score every game that he pitched for the Mets, knowing that he could likely pitch a perfect game or a no-hitter. One of my fondest trips to a game was in 1984 when I drove from DC to Baltimore to see him pitch for the White Sox. As unnatural as it was to see The Franchise is anything other than a Mets uniform, it was great to see a master at work.

Tom’s approach to pitching and professionalism can be summed up by his response when asked his opinion of pitch counts in modern baseball. He said, “If Rube Walker cam to take me out in the 8th inning of a shutout, I would have told him to get the f—k off my mound.” As great a pitcher as he was, his wine is pretty darn good, too!

This is a sad time for the Seaver family and all of us who were lucky enough to see the greatest pitcher who ever played the game. Remember what a great person and player George Thomas Seaver was.

A lifelong New York Met fan, I began the 1967 Campaign as a 14 year old Met fan, a High School Freshman when Tom debuted . His life and the way He carried Himself were most needed by this kid cause people in high school were listening to the Stones, the Dead, and a host of high flying hippies. I needed Tom to learn how to be a young respected Drug Free guy. Everyone was High on something, I got high watching my Mets with ' The Franchise ' who became such a Role Model for us City guys. I've met you Nancy being my courteous self as You watched Your Husband from behind the screen. We, original Met fans since inception in 62' will forever have our many, many stories, thoughts , and recollections till We meet in Heaven. To Nancy and Sarah and Anne with spouses and grandchildren; You have my unconditional love with my truest sense of respect and dignity for Tom's wonderful family. Please think of Me with a kind prayer. Respectfully, Fred Lack. Jersey City, NJ.

Being a yankee fan, I was always envious of Tom Terrific. The Mets always had better pitching than the Yankees, and Seaver put an exclamation point on this fact. He is now with the other Baseball greats playing on a field in the heavens. RIP Mr. Seaver.

I saw Tom Seaver pitch many times at Shea Stadium. He was pure magic on the mound. In 1991 I met him at Macy's 34th Street store (in NYC) when he was promoting his cologne line. He shook my hand, and gave me an autographed photo. He noticed that I was very pregnant at the time. He said, "Here's one photo for you and one for the baby.". He was so kind and friendly. I am so very sorry that Tom Seaver has passed. My sincere condolences to Nancy and his entire family.

Tom Seaver was a great icon. He was a talented Pitcher with power and control altogether. I always enjoyed watching him pitch on all the Mets games I watched through the years they were on Channel 9 TV in New York. As a person, he had dignity and class. He had discipline and principles and good values. And a great family person. There ought to be many ball players like him. He also gave back a lot to the community that was related to Baseball. An outstanding broadcaster as well for WPIX Channel 11 on Yankees Baseball in 1993 with Phil Rizzuto and Bobby Murcer. He also broadcast for the Mets a couple of years ago. And broadcast with Keith Jackson and Howard Cosell in 1977 witnessing Reggie Jackson's 3 Home runs in one game. Tom and Nancy Seaver were well known celebrity couples. They did commercials together and became co-host of the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in November of 1969. Tom also did TV interviews with on a show called legends with other well known athletes in history, sharing the host spot with Reggie Jackson. I wish I had the opportunity to meet him and his wife in person. May Gods peace be with you Tom. It is not going to be the same without you.

So sorry to hear the passing of Tom Seaver. After the loss of my beloved Orioles in 1969 to Tom's Mets, I became a "closet" Mets fan. It was a horrible year (1969) for Baltimore as the O's lost to Mets, Colts lost to the Jets & Bullets lost to Knicks. (Catch my drift ?) Tom was a class act, a great example for the up and coming Major Leaguer's. God's peace and comfort to the family and fans everywhere.

As a five year old in 1967, my father took me to my first baseball game at Shea Stadium. He wanted to see some rookie named Seaver pitch. Three years later, my family moved three blocks away from yours in Bayside, N.Y. Twenty-two years after that, I covered your press conference on the announcement of your induction into the baseball HOF for a major New York radio station. Thank you so much for a youth filled with incredible personal and baseball memories. My condolences to the Seaver family, the N.Y. Mets family and Tom Seaver fans throughout the world.

Back in Norwalk, Ct. 1967, a 9 year old boy became a true Met fan because of you, and you were always my hero, even to this day and forever. I was happy when you'd win and so sad when you'd lose. When you got traded I cried and became a short term Reds fan, until you came back to N.Y., rooting for you on other teams too. I was at Yankee Stadium for #300 and what a day it turned out to be, seeing Met fans but mostly Yankee fans, rooting for you so loudly from the 7th inning on, even on Phil Rizzuto Day, score 4-1.
Thank you Tom Seaver for so many memories that you gave me as a kid.
To the Nancy Seaver & family, I send my condolences. Rest in Peace #41

Tom Seaver was a phenomenal pitcher and always a class act. I grew up a Reds fan in Pennsylvania and had the pleasure of seeing a lot of Mets games on cable (Channel 9) and his many appearances on Kiner's Korner following games. Sad to see him leave the Mets, but was elated to have him join the Reds in 1977 about two weeks before my 12th birthday. As soon as I heard the news, I designed a red tee shirt with "Cincinnati" on the front and "Seaver" and #41 on the back so that I could proudly show my support and enthusiasm for Tom joining the Big Red Machine. (Those were days before replica uniforms were common.) Something got lost in translation from me explaining to my mom what I wanted for my 12th birthday and her relaying it to the tee shirt maker and the shirt came out with "Cincinnati Seaver" on the front and just the number on the back. Odd looking shirt, but it I still wore it proudly and ended up picking up the nickname "Cincinnati Seaver" from my science teacher that fall. I wore that shirt every chance I got.

Tom played longer for the Mets, but had a great years in Cincinnati as well. It was a treasure to grow up watching Tom Seaver play and see him as a regular guy in interviews where he was both funny and interesting. First class guy. All-time great. Great memories. R.I.P. Tom Terrific.

Dear Fans of Tom Seaver, #41,

The first time I saw you pitch I was 12, problem was I rooted for the Big Red Machine, in '73, you and Yogi, #8, plus the shortstop gave Pete Rose, #14 and his team a black eye! It showed in the words of Tug McGraw, #45, ' you gotta believe! " Unless you have played, really played, they donot understand in the words of Jim McKay's Wide World of Sports, on ABC, Saturdays' " the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat! " In 1973, World Series vs My Oakland A's, you pitched against the Great Catfish Hunter, #27, twice, Game 3 marred by Mike Andrews, fielding misplay, made more headlines, than you and another future Hall of Famer! Both no decision, but you took the loss in Game 6, started by #9 Mr October, Reginald Martinez Jackson, or plain Reggie! The series lost, traded in '77, then beginning of " buying the best players money could buy! " Got you traded. Cried, OH I remember your tears, I was 16, ballplayers, we understand! you went to Cincinnati Reds, no hitter, success, White Sox, 300 game win, 1985, I taped it on VHS, gave up homerun to Don Baylor, #25, the two of you are together again. Where did you go, to her, your blonde beauty, Mrs Tom Terrific, always by your side, your kids, always by your side, New York City, it is not Shea, it is " the House Ruth Built! " another pitcher. Went back home to the Mets, Red Sox, you wanted nothing more even when a broadcaster with Phil Rizzuto, #10 and Yankee Bobby Murcer, to me #1, that was his original number I saw in 1973! You always and will always be a New York Metropolitan like Mickey Mantle #7, was a Yankee!

My condolences to the Seaver family, with all the wonderful accolades and tributes being said about Mr. Seaver, isn't this the way we would all want to be thought of when its our time to go to Heaven, we need more Tom Seavers in this world

RIP Mr. Seaver we will miss you

Posted by Chuck G    September 04, 2020

What Tom Seaver did for me is unquestionably remarkable. What Gil Hodges did for Tom Seaver, Tom Seaver did for me.

At 12 years old I stood in front of my TV watching the METS and imitating Tom's pitching motion. When the game was over, I still did it. I was in front of my TV when he struck out 19, with 10 in a row and again when he missed out of pitching a perfect game.

I saw how Tom conducted his life, both on and off the field. He was a scholar, a gentleman, a philosopher, a patriot and a sports hero. He was the epitome of what a boy growing up should look up to. That boy was me and I have never forgotten how he influenced my life. I have always felt inspired. My dog's name is "SEAVER-SHEA," and any organized ball I've ever played, I wore number "41."

For me I am saddened by having never met Tom Seaver. He was the singular person I ever really wanted to meet, above presidents, movie stars or even other sports greats. When Tom passed I felt truly heartbroken, though I am surely not alone in that regard.

While we did not know each other, Tom Seaver was always my friend and always will be. For those who did know Tom, your lives were truly enriched. For the family of Tom Seaver, expressions of condolence are not enough. To have known and loved Tom Seaver, I feel that you were greatly blessed.

When the 2020 METS came out for their game versus NY Yankees last night, all wearing dirt on their right knees, I got choked up. A fitting tribute to a wonderful human being!

I was born in 1963 and grew up with Tom as my idol and hero. I remember as a young boy reading his auto biography and mimicking his pitching form. My best friend was a left hander and he would pretend to be Jerry Koosman while I was Tom. Great Memories! When the Mets traded Tom I was heart broken and could no longer watch their games. I was excited when the Mets were able to get him back only for them to goof up again and not protect him from being picked up by the White Sox. I was lucky enough to watch his 300th victory while sitting next to Daryl Dawkins of the Nets and 76ers. Rest in God's Peace Tom ..you were a Class Act and a fine human being . May God comfort your family at this time.

I was at the 1970 game against San Diego when he set that strikeout record. I was 9 years old. My first Mets game and my father took me. We sat 4 rows behind Joanne Payson. My dad pointed her out to me. I was so bored! I wanted hits and HRs and Tom is here whiffing them all! Haha. I had the whole Mets roster memorized and used to sneak my little transistor radio under my pillow to listen to the games as my bedtime was 8pm and the games would often go later. RIP Tom. You gave me wonderful memories I will cherish forever!

Posted by A friend   September 03, 2020

Nancy, Sarah, and Anne,
My deepest condolences to all of you for your loss. I was heartbroken this morning when I heard the news and instantly thought of you.
My first memory of Tom was when I was about 5 or 6 years old and we were all together at Mama's house in LA. Tom had brought a model airplane that he had built and painted (yellow). I was fascinated by it and began playing with it when Tom left it on a table, of coarse I inadvertently broke it. I remember being terrified by what my cousin would do to me when he found out. I remember trying to figure out how to fix the airplane by jamming the broken pieces back together. Just then Tom walked in and saw me with his broken plane. I started crying, fearing the worst, and I'll never forget how kind Tom was to me. He said to not worry about it and assured me that it was an easy fix. I calmed down and stopped crying at about the same time Uncle Charlie walked by and said, " Tom, leave the poor kid alone!". Tom just smiled at me. From that day on, my cousin Tom was my hero.
May God grant you the peace you deserve,
Cousin Brett

All the stats of the talented athletes we admired and then
Some. I loved Tom! Knew everything about him. I saw him pitch several times, and was in awe of him. I still know his stats. Condolences to Nancy and his 2 daughters. To his family and dear friend Nolan Ryan, and everyone that loved this dear man.
Tom, never met you, wish I had the opportunity. I sat in the bleachers watching you trying to figure out how I could get near you to let you know this
"young lady" loved baseball!
I still do! It baffles me when talking to the opposite sex and baseball is disgusted, they look at me like I'm an alien. Those days still exist. I'll talk baseball with anyone, everyone. Hi to my broadcaster buddy, Vin Scully. Yes, even with you.
RIP Mr. Tom Seaver.
God called you home.
Take the rest you deserve,

Posted by Robin L.    September 03, 2020

I want to pay tribute and honor my hero Tom Seaver and to let people know how important this man was to me and the life lessons I learned from him for the past 58 years. I was 21 years old in 1983 when the Mets traded him to the Reds and I cried like a baby. I turned 58 a couple of weeks ago and when I heard the news of his passing and I don’t think people realize yet of how much the game and our country will have suffered. I call on all baseball people in our country Little League of America high schools college to use his example to teach our young people of had to succeed and don’t forget and shut the history books on him because he can still do amazing things for our use even though he doesn’t walk among us anymore. Because of lessons his life and career and the respect for the game taught me I have been able to pass them down to my two sons Michael now 34 and my 18 year old Andrew Josephi who is entering his first year of college baseball. His work ethic athletic ability and intelligence were a cornerstone of my effort to teach my sons that baseball is a thinking mans game and sons realized that education goes hand in hand with athletic ability. His book “The Art of Pitching “ should be required reading for all young ball players by the time they reach 12 years old. I don’t use any of the Instagram or twitters tweeters or Facebook or other social media so I don’t have any way to put it out on the web but I think there’s a lot of fans and former teammates and coaches who would appreciate some thing from some old anonymous West Virginia hillbilly father of two ball players who became fan of baseball because I started out and still am Tom Seaver’s biggest fan. Oh and by the way our boys play Baseball in West Virginia for the love of the game because of men like Tom Seaver. They call me ‘ The Bat Whisperer’ around here and I still teach ball players how to hit regardless of age or lack of experience and I still teach hitting for free to any player with the desire to work and use their mind and they all receive the assignment to read about how Tom Seaver’s history and tell them if they follow his road map of success they will achieve some success to go along with their joy and love of baseball. Thank you Tom Seaver from all baseball people here in West Virginia.

Tom Weaver personified the title: Class Act. Always a complete professional and a person of character. I remember working as a Military Police Lieutenant one night in the winter of 1976 at Ft. Monmouth, NJ. I had responded to a call from the hospital emergency room and was conversing with the head duty nurse, a Mrs Joe Deere. During this conversation I learned that she was the spouse of the current Mets trainor. Well, I had to ask her if it was possible for her husband to acquire an autographed ball from Mr. Seaver. He did, I still have it, signed personally to me. Thanks for the cherished memories Mr. Seaver. To Nancy and the entire family, my deepest condolences and my eternal respect for Tom.

I got to see Mr. Seaver pitch against the Astros in 1977. Despite the Reds losing, he treated us to a solid homer down the left field line. He contributed greatly to the magic of our national pastime in an era when it was still a game and not the political machine it has since become. To all who mourn his passing, tears are a language our God understands...............Matthew 11:28 - 30...............Romans 10:9 - 13.
