Default Tom Seaver

Someone here was just asking about him. So sad

One of my all time favorites: he's only 74

Tom Seaver has been diagnosed with dementia and has chosen to retire from public life, according to a statement from the Hall of Fame pitcher's family on Thursday.

Very sad news. My first hero and the first poster over my bed as a kid. Hope he enjoys a good quality of life and can enjoy his vineyard for years to come.

Amazing talent but definitely an odd dude in his day. I recall one Fathers Day he was at Citified (or possibly one of the last years at Shea) and he was signing balls in the Mets clubhouse store. Was like $79. Me and my son stood in line and he was sitting at a table in the back signing. Line wasn't bad. When he was signing I said the obvious "Happy Fathers Day Tom." Without saying a word in response he just looked up and glared at me. All of a sudden I had a sickening feeling that maybe he lost a child and I said something really stupid. He just rolled the ball back to me and said nothing. Probably my oddest experience with anyone ever signing something for me. Was almost like I had pissed him off somehow.
