Former New York Met great and MLB Hall of Famer, Tom Seaver , has been diagnosed with dementia and will retire from public life. Seaver, 74, will continue to work in the day-to-day operations of a vineyard he owns with his wife but will be unable to attend the “50th Anniversary” celebration of the 1969 “Miracle Mets” who came from nowhere to win the 1969 World Series.
Seaver won 311 games with the Mets, Reds, Red Sox, and White Sox in a career that spanned from 1967-1986. Seaver was a three-time Cy Young award winner, the 1967 Rookie of the Year, and finished with his 3640 strikeouts and 61 shutouts. He was elected to the MLB Hall of Fame with 98.8% of the vote, a mark that stood until the election of Ken Griffey Jr. in 2016.
Seaver was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 1991 while living in Connecticut which reoccurred in 2012 leading to Bell’s palsy and short term memory loss.
