New York Mets to honor Tom Seaver this season with ’41’ patch

The New York Mets will honor Tom Seaver by wearing his No. 41 on a patch this season, the club announced Monday.

Seaver died last August at the age of 75 from complications of Lewy body dementia and COVID-19.

Seaver won 311 games in a 20-year career that included 12 years with the Mets. He is the Mets’ all-time leader in wins (198), strikeouts (2,541), shutouts (44), ERA (2.57), complete games (171) and starts (395).

The right-hander was elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1992 with what at the time was the highest percentage of votes received — 98.84 percent.

In 2019, the Mets named the street running in front of Citi Field “41 Tom Seaver Way.”
