I figured I would just compile some Tweets about what people were saying about Tom Seaver.
RIP Tom Seaver. Your last pitch from the #Mets mound was a STRIKE to open Citifield with @mikepiazza31 @Mets pic.twitter.com/lFfDGmBXcJ— Sam Zee (@SamZComedy) September 3, 2020
Tom Seaver was my first favorite player and the greatest of @mets - we will never forget you 41— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) September 3, 2020

The 2 best @Mets pitchers together. RT @DocGooden16: Everyone knows he was a great pitcher. But he was an even greater person. RIP to my friend Tom! pic.twitter.com/mk1NewDSFL— David Brody (@DavidBrody) September 3, 2020
That time Tom Brady made a bid to trademark "Tom Terrific." The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office declined, essentially saying there's already a "Tom Terrific" — and it's this guy. @Mets #LGM https://t.co/lHKuPrUUuf pic.twitter.com/0htrpyQQhq— Zach Haberman (@ZHaberman) September 3, 2020
The game of baseball, the @Mets organization and the @baseballhall in Cooperstown has lost a giant. RIP Tom Terrific. https://t.co/OI8u1jkiQo pic.twitter.com/QN9TJi6sQl— Spencer Davidson (@SDavidsonWKTV) September 3, 2020
I am not alone in saying this, but Tom Terrific was my boyhood idol. Very sad to hear this. #RIP41 RT @Mets: #RIP41 pic.twitter.com/MRWnuxX2gn— Jim Cerny (@JimCerny) September 3, 2020
I will never forgive the pathetic current (but not for long) Mets ownership for not putting up a Tom Seaver statue in his lifetime. Screw the Wilpons. RIP Tom.— Knicks Memes (@KnicksMemes) September 3, 2020
For @Mets fans everywhere this is incredibly heartbreaking.— CJ Warnke 🏍 (@cjwarnke) September 3, 2020
Not only was Tom Seaver "The Franchise" for a city that had been abandoned by the Dodgers and Giants, but he is the greatest Met of all time and made some damn good wine.
Rest in peace. https://t.co/rnjPVV1LSn
The Franchise. The greatest @Mets player of all time. I never got to watch him play outside of highlight tapes, but I’ve always understood his leading, gigantic role in the history of the organization. May he rest in peace. #TomSeaver pic.twitter.com/sJQRqeKIau— Stephen Milewski (@TheSkiReport) September 3, 2020
Maybe now the Wilpons will do what they should have done a long time ago.— Joe Cardi (@JoeCardi) September 3, 2020

RIP to The Franchise--the great Tom Seaver. @ArtShamsky and I brought '69 @Mets Mets Jerry Koosman, Bud Harrelson, and Rocky Swoboda out to see him three years ago. Art and I wrote a book, #AFTERTHEMIRACLE in which the trip was highlighted. Greatest weekend of my life. pic.twitter.com/Do7L03Cii2— Erik Sherman (@byErikSherman) September 3, 2020
We remember Tom Seaver - @Mets 1967-77, 1983; @Reds 1977-82; @whitesox 1984-86; @RedSox 1986. "The Franchise." "Tom Terridic." Winner of 311 games and 3 NL Cy Young awards. @baseballhall "Class of 1992." Our first Player of the Year (1969). #RestInPeace pic.twitter.com/ww0r99XgbM— Baseball Digest (@BaseballDigest) September 3, 2020
