41 Tom Seaver Way Officially Named

50th Anniversary of the 1969 World Champion "Amazing Mets"

June 27th 2019: Today the New York Mets & the City of New York Officially named 126th St along the Right field side of Citi Field, Tom Seaver Way. The official address of Citi Field is now also a tribute to Seaver, 41 Seaver Way.

Seaver who has now retired from public life, did not attend, neither did his wife Nancy who stayed with Tom back in California, where they have wine vineyards. But their daughters & grand children did make it tp the event.

Quotes- Sara Seaver: "We are so happy to be part of this ceremony & our father is honored & humbled to be memorialized in these ways, we thank the Amazing fans for their outpouring of love & support".

Seaver has had his uniform #41 retired by the Mets * did have a gate named after him at Citi Field. There are finally plans for a long overdue Tom Seaver statue outside Citi Field by the HR Apple as well.

from centerfield: It's really ashamed that it took this long for an honor like this to be given to Seaver, A statue should have been put up long ago like many other ballparks do in honor of their greatest players. 

As usual the Wilpons failed, at this point poor Tom can't even enjoy the honor. There was Jackie Robinson Rotunda, a Dodger player but never anything on a grand scale for Seaver, the greatest Met of all time. These clowns need to sell this club or the team will never be a champion. As a buisness owner if you've only come on top once in 40 years you failed!!!!
