Tom attended Fresno High School, where he played both baseball and basketball – he hoped to pursue a career in baseball despite getting All-City basketball honors. In 1962, he joined the US Marine Corps Reserves and served as part of AIRFMFPAC 29 Palms for six months. He then attended Fresno City College, but a season later, he was recruited by the University of Southern California though he was first sent to play for the Alaska Goldpanners. He would win a game in the national tournament with a grand slam, and was then offered a scholarship. He was drafted in the 10th round of the 1965 MLB draft but the offer was withdrawn when Tom asked for $70,000.

The following year, he signed by the Atlanta Braves, but the offer was voided because Baseball Commissioner William Eckert ruled that Seaver’s college team had played exhibition games that year, despite the fact that he didn’t play in them. The NCAA then ruled him ineligible because he had already signed a pro contract. Eventually, the New York Mets would sign Tom after winning a lottery, and was then sent to the Jacksonville Suns of the International League. In 1967, he would become part of the New York Mets team, and was named National League Rookie of the Year after winning 16 games for the last place Mets. He also became part of the 1967 All-Star Game.

In 1969, Sever would help the Mets win their first World Series championship, also earning him his first National League Cy Young Award, and finishing second in MVP voting. Thanks to these achievements, he was presented the Hickok Belt, and was named “Sportsman of the Year” by Sports Illustrated. He continued playing well over the next few years, setting records and playing in consecutive 20 win seasons. He led the National League in strikeouts, and it was noted that his strong legs protected his arms, ensuring his longevity as a pitcher.

In 1977 he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds, after he requested a move due to an inability to get along with chairman of the board M. Donald Grant. He continued his streak with Cincinnati and won 21 games that season, and went on to eventually record his 3000th strikeout. He suffered through injuries in 1982 which hampered his performance, and was then traded back to the Mets in 1982. In 1984 he was claimed as a free agent by the Chicago White Sox, due to a mistake made by the Mets in not putting him on the protected list. He pitched his last shutout in Chicago, and would register his 300th victory against the Yankees in 1985, was traded to the Boston Red Sox in 1986, but then retired as part of the Mets in 1987.

In 1992, he became part of the Baseball Hall of Fame and was ranked as one of the “100 Greatest Baseball Players” by The Sporting News. Since retiring, he’s worked as a color commentator with several TV stations.

For his personal life, it is known that Tom married Nancy Lynn McIntyre in 1966 and they have two daughters; they own a vineyard in Calistoga, California. He has been diagnosed with Lyme disease which causes Bell’s palsy – he has reached Stage 3 of the disease, and is still undergoing treatment for it.

# Quote
1 It was within my grasp. I don’t think I’ve ever had a more disappointing moment in baseball. [on how he felt after his bid for a perfect game had been broken up]
2 It takes 20 victories for people to recognize you as a great pitcher.
3 I don’t like 10:30 AM starting times. I’m not fully awake until the fifth or sixth inning. [after starting and winning the first game of a doubleheader on July 4, 1969 that started at 10:30 AM]
4 If you don’t think baseball is a big deal, don’t do it. But if you do, do it right.
5 I would like to be a great artist. I would quit pitching if I could paint like Monet or Rousseau. But I can’t. What I can do is pitch, and I can do that very well.
6 In baseball, my theory is to strive for consistency, not to worry about the numbers. If you dwell on statistics you get shortsighted; if you aim for consistency, the numbers will be there at the end.
7 To an early ’70s fan who noted his accomplishments: “Yeah, but you forgot one thing: I’m the only pitcher in the history of the Mets who’s lost a ball game in the World Series.”
8 My job isn’t to strike guys out, it’s to get them out – sometimes by striking them out.
9 That was nice, but it’s only the first step. I want to pitch on a Mets pennant winner and I want to pitch the first game in the World Series. I want to change things around here. The Mets have been a joke long enough. It’s time to start winning, to change the attitude, to move on to better things. I don’t want the Mets to be laughed at anymore. [commenting on being selected to the All-Star team in 1967]
10 I drink beer, I swear, but I keep my hair short, so I guess that makes me an All-American boy.
