“We are heartbroken to share that our beloved husband and father has passed away,” his wife Nancy Seaver and daughters, Sarah and Anne, said in a statement. “We send our love out to his fans, as we mourn his loss with you.”
“I am deeply saddened by the death of Tom Seaver, one of the greatest pitchers of all-time,” MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “Tom was a gentleman who represented the best of our National Pastime.

Few Things You Need To Know About Tom Sievers
Tom Seaver was born in Fresno, California, to Betty Lee (née Cline) and Charles Henry Seaver.
He attended Fresno High School and was a pitcher for the school’s baseball team.
Seaver compensated for his lack of size and strength by developing great control on the mound. Despite being an All-City basketball player, he hoped to play baseball in college. He joined the United States Marine Corps Reserve on June 28, 1962. He served with AIRFMFPAC 29 Palms, California, through July 1963.
After six months of active duty in the Reserve, Seaver enrolled at Fresno City College.
He remained a part-time member of the Reserve until his eight-year commitment ended in 1970.
The University of Southern California (USC) recruited Seaver to play college baseball for the USC Trojans. Unsure as to whether Seaver was worthy of a scholarship, he was sent to pitch for the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks, Alaska, in 1964.
After a stellar season – in which he pitched and won a game in the national tournament with a grand slam – he was awarded a scholarship to USC. As a sophomore, Seaver posted a 10–2 record, and he was drafted in the 10th round of the 1965 Major League Baseball draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers. When Seaver asked for $70,000, however, the Dodgers passed.
