Tom Seaver is Diagnosed with Dementia

More sad news as it was reported in the New York Times and other sources that at age 74 Tom Seaver was diagnosed with dementia and will no longer make public appearances.


NEW YORK — Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver has been diagnosed with dementia and has retired from public life.

The family of the 74-year-old made the announcement Thursday through the Hall. They say Seaver will continue to work in the vineyard at his home in California.

Seaver has limited his public appearances in recent years. He didn't attend the Baseball Writers' Association of America dinner in January when members of the New York Mets' 1969 World Series championship team were honored.


At the recent meeting of the Casey Stengel Chapter of SABR his former teammate Art Shamsky who has written a book about the 1969 Mets alluded to this.
