Tom Seaver turns 65 today. Happy Birthday to The Franchise!
Seaver was easily the key reason our ballclub was able to mature from 100 game losers to world champions.
The face of New York baseball in the late 60’s and early 70’s, to many Mets fans, he is still the best player the team’s ever had. A player like Seaver is something I’ll always wish I had growing up.
It’s still a pleasure to see him working with and around the Mets organization. And nothing beat him throwing to Piazza to close Shea/open Citi.
Happy birthday Tom Terriffic.
