TOM SEAVER RUMORS & GOSSIP

QUIZ: Name every player on the roster of the 1969 Miracle Mets

In their eighth season of existence, the New York Mets won the World Series. This was somewhat unexpected as the franchise started out with seven straight losing seasons never finishing better than ninth out of ten in the National League. But in 1969, they beat the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series and earned the nickname, the Miracle Mets. Can you name every player on the roster...

Tom Seaver's wife 'embarrassed' Mets don’t have statue of him

At the present moment, the New York Mets don’t feature statues to honor any of the franchise’s great players. One person who’s upset with that is Nancy Seaver, wife of Mets’ legend Tom Seaver. She feels that Citi Field should have a statue that honors her husband, as well as the team’s other legends. “I’m embarrassed for (the Mets). I really am,” Nancy said, per...

This Date In Mets History: Qualls Breaks Up Seaver’s Perfect Game

On this date in 1969, Chicago Cubs outfielder Jimmy Qualls  hit a clean sinking single into left-center with one out in the ninth inning to break up a perfect game by Tom Seaver. The scene of the crime was a packed Shea Stadium and a dejected Seaver had to settle for a one-hit, 4-0 shutout. He would walk off the mound to a three minute standing ovation from the 59,088 fans who...

Tom Seaver and the Alaska Goldpanners

I picked up a 1971 copy of this book written by George Sullivan and published by G. P. Putnam’s Sons at auction a couple of weeks ago.

What Ernie Bowman taught Tom Seaver

I picked up a 1966 Topps Ernie Bowman baseball card last week. This is an interesting card in its own right because Bowman never actually played a game for the New York Mets. In 1966, Bowman played for their minor league affiliate, the Jacksonville Suns. What also makes Bowman particularly interesting is because of how he fits into the team’s history. What makes the Jacksonville...
