Perhaps no single player is identified more with one team than “The Franchise” Tom Seaver is with the New York Mets. Seaver helped turn the Mets from loveable losers into formidable foes. Hall of Fame outfielder and Mets broadcaster Ralph Kiner recalled “Tom Seaver was the driving force behind the players, always pushing the team to be better than they were, never letting them settle.”

In 1969, the Mets captured their first World Series championship behind the powerful right arm of “Tom Terrific.” Seaver took home his first National League Cy Young Award that year, leading the major leagues in victories with 25, which accounted for one quarter of the Mets’ wins. Teammate Cleon Jones said “Tom does everything well. He’s the kind of man you’d want your kids to grow up to be like. Tom’s a studious player, devoted to his profession, a loyal cat, trustworthy – everything a Boy Scout’s supposed to be. In fact, we call him ‘Boy Scout.’ ” One year later, Seaver tied a major league record, striking out 19 San Diego Padres including a record 10 consecutive to end the game.

Seaver was an intelligent pitcher who brought great velocity and pinpoint control with him to the mound. Hall of Famer Hank Aaron said Tom Seaver was “the toughest pitcher I’ve ever faced.” In an ESPN poll, Hall of Famers Bob Gibson, Juan Marichal, Jim Palmer, Nolan Ryan, Steve Carlton, Bert Blyleven, and Don Sutton all said Tom Seaver was the best pitcher of their generation.

From 1967-1977, “The Franchise” was selected to 10 All-Star teams, lead the league in strikeouts five times, put together five 20 win seasons, threw five one-hitters and won three Cy Young Awards. Hall of Famer Sparky Anderson, who managed Seaver with the Cincinnati Reds in 1977 and ‘78, recalled, “My idea of managing is giving the ball to Tom Seaver and sitting down and watching him work.”

Tom Seaver no-hit the Cardinals in 1978 and in 1981 became the fifth player in history to record 3,000 strikeouts. In 1985, he returned to New York as a member of the Chicago White Sox and won his 300th major league game at Yankee Stadium.
