Tom Seaver Dies At Age 75 From COVID-19 Complications

Rest In Peace to Tom “Terrific”, the epitome of a franchise pitcher and a Top 10 hurler in the history of the sport. He had grit, he had the swag that an ace of an MLB staff should possess. He was the epitome of a “shutdown starter”, “a slump buster,” “money in the bank.”

Seaver was a technician who mastered the art of pitching as effectively as anyone to do it over his two-decade career that began in 1967 and ended in 1986.
