Tom Seaver has been diagnosed with dementia.
As a Mets fan Seaver was my first sports hero. I was 9 when he was traded and I remember that I couldn’t understand why they would trade their best player (still don’t). When Seaver returned to the Mets in 1983 My friend and I skipped school to go to the game. Seaver vs. Carlton. Tom Terrific threw 6 shutout innings as the Mets won 2-0.
I wish him the best.
