STATEMENT FROM JEFF WILPON ON BEHALF OF
OWNERSHIP AND THE METS ORGANIZATION
“We’ve been in contact with the Seaver family and are aware of his health situation. Although, he’s unable to attend the ’69 Anniversary, we are planning to honor him in special ways and have included his family in our plans. Our thoughts are with Tom, Nancy and the entire Seaver Family.
I know that the Mets are trying to change the culture of the organization but this is still a thorn in many folks sides.
Hey Wilpons and the Mets. THIS IS WHY WE WANTED YOU TO CREATE A STATUE FOR THIS MAN!!! From the murmurs I have heard behind the scenes, Tom hasn't been himself for a while. We as Mets fans wanted to honor him while he could travel and receive the thanks and adulation from the Mets fans. This makes me very sad that knowing the Wilpons they will decide to commission a statue a few years after he passes away.
Read more at at NJ.comWe have had a chance to honor a great Met in the past. He is the Franchise. I am glad at least the QBC was able to give him he Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award so he knew the fans were still there for him.
I am not going to do that thing with my thoughts and prayers etc...
Tom. I just wish you the best quality of life for the rest of your life.
