The sports world lost a great one today. Tom Seaver was a class act, both on and off the field.
I was not a Mets fan growing up; I rooted for the SF Giants. But I had only respect for Seaver. He was the kind of rival you could never dislike.
He unfortunately was suffering from dementia in recent times. But, until then, he had a wonderful life.
The bottom line: he epitomized the best of what you hope to see in sports. He will be missed.
