Tom Seaver has been diagnosed with Dementia



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.
The Seaver family announced today that Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver has recently been diagnosed with dementia. Tom will continue to work in his beloved vineyard at his California home, but has chosen to completely retire from public life. The family is deeply appreciative of those who have supported Tom throughout his career, on and off the field, and who do so now by honoring his request for privacy. We join Tom in sending warmest regards to everyone.

We 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.
