Mets great Tom Seaver diagnosed with dementia and social media reacts

The family of New York Mets legend Tom Seaver has released a statement that says Seaver has been diagnosed with dementia.

Tom Seaver of the New York Mets pitches during an Major League Baseball game at Shea Stadium in Queens, N.Y. Seaver pitched for the Mets from 1967-1977 and 1983. 'Tom will continue to work in his beloved vineyard at his California home, but has chosen to completely retire from public life. Shamsky, 77, wrote that Seaver was suffering from short-term memory loss.

That same year, Seaver was named the National League Rookie of the Year after winning 16 games for the last-place Mets, with 18 complete games, 170 strikeouts, and a 2.76 ERA, ESPN reported. Seaver won three Cy Young Awards and scored 198 of his 311 career wins in a Mets uniform.

Speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal can not be announced until the start of the new league year March 13, the person confirmed that the teams will also swap 2020 draft picks, with Denver receiving a sixth-rounder and Washington a seventh-rounder.

Ron Swoboda, another member of that team, said, "Nobody competed like Tom Seaver".

This year, former New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera received 100 percent of the votes becoming the the Hall's first unanimous selection.

Ed Kranepool, Seaver's teammate on the 1969 Mets, told the Bergen Record, "He always handled himself with dignity and class". He also played with the Reds, White Sox and Red Sox before retiring in 1986 after 20 seasons.

"I heard callers bring up this statue thing". Baseball rules at the time prohibited a team from signing a college player whose season had started. Any team willing to match the Braves' signing bonus could enter a lottery, and the Mets won out over Cleveland and Philadelphia.

Mike Francesa just broke one of the biggest NY stories of the year. Seaver lost the opener 4-1 in a matchup with Mike Cuellar, then pitched a 10-inning six-hitter to win Game 4.

His most memorable moment on the mound was at Shea Stadium on July 9, 1969, when he retired his first 25 batters against the Cubs. "My wife Monica and I have the Seavers in our prayers". "What more could I ask for?'"
