Seaver broke into the major leagues in 1967 and retired in 1986. He played for four different teams in his career but was primarily associated with his first, the New York Mets. He won the National League Rookie of the Year Award and three Cy Young Awards as the league's best pitcher. Nicknamed "Tom Terrific" and "The Franchise," he had 311 wins, 3,640 strikeouts and a 2.86 ERA in a 20-year career. In 1992 he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
In 1969, the Mets completed a truly remarkable season, coming from nowhere to win their first World Series championship. Seaver won a league-high 25 games and his first National League Cy Young Award. At year's end, he was presented with both the Hickok Belt as the top professional athlete of the year and Sports Illustrated magazine's "Sportsman of the Year" award.
On April 22, 1970, the day he received his Cy Young Award, Seaver set a modern major league record by striking out (the final) 10 consecutive San Diego Padres at Shea Stadium. He finished the game with 19 strikeouts to tie Steve Carlton's major league record.
Since retirement, Seaver has been a television color commentator for the New York Yankees, NBC Sports and the Mets, a part-time scout, and a Spring training pitching coach. In 1999, he ranked number 32 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, the only player to have spent a majority of his career with the Mets to make the list. That year, he was also a nominee for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.
As of 2010, Tom Seaver and Gil Hodges (played for the Mets in 1962-63) are the only Met players to have their jersey numbers retired by the team (Gil Hodges' number was retired as a manager even though he also played for the Mets).
