He was called Tom Terrific for a reason: Tom Seaver was one of only two pitchers with 300 wins, 3,000 strikeouts, and an ERA under 3.00. He was a three-time Cy Young award winner, 12-time All Star, and was elected to baseball's Hall of Fame with the highest percentage ever at the time. Popular among players and fans, Seaver was fiercely competitive but always put team success ahead of personal glory. A friend for many years, Tom Madden offers a well-rounded portrait of the man who led the New York Mets to their stunning 1969 World Series victory. Here too is a look at Seaver's retirement, as he established a successful vineyard and battled Lyme disease and dementia.
