Tom Seaver Documentary





22-year-old pitcher Tom Seaver, known as “The Franchise” and “Tom Terrific,” was exactly who New York Mets fans needed in 1967, taking the team from laughingstock to World Champion in 1969 and forming a long-standing bond along the way. “Seaver,” a new FOX Sports Films documentary, celebrates his impact – shedding light on the reclusive icon and his relationship to the team, fans and city. The film, executive produced and narrated by Edward Burns, premieres Sunday, October 13 on FOX at 3:00 PM or 4:30 PM ET (check local listings)
As Burns states in the opening moments: “You can’t understand the Mets without knowing his tale as well.” The film is produced by Marlboro Road Gang Productions and Street Smart Video, in association with Major League Baseball.
Interviewees include Tom and Nancy Seaver, New York Mets Owner Fred Wilpon; former teammates and MLB players Ron Swoboda, Jerry Koosman, Ron Darling, Hank Aaron, Billy Williams, Jim Palmer, Joe Morgan and Johnny Bench, as well as a litany of sports writers and broadcasters who covered baseball during Seaver’s time in the major leagues.
The documentary chronicles Seaver’s career, including a series of trades before he retired as a Met in 1987. While achieving career milestones with other teams, including a no-hitter and 300th career win, the film shows us why his impact on the Mets is lasting. “Seaver” is part of FOX Sports MLB postseason four-film documentary slate.
FOX Sports Films is dedicated to presenting captivating global sports documentaries through an unconventional and entertaining lens. Working with FOX Sports’ live rights league partners, each year the FOX Sports Films team produces original programming around the world’s biggest sporting events.

Mets Managerial Prospect Conspiracy Theory

Anyone remember this from 2007?
Read more here.

Now the conspiracy theorist in me could see why certain names with no managerial experience are being bandied about. That is if this directive is still around. I think the Mets want Girardi but have to go about the MLB directive if this directive is still around.
