Mets Announce Tom Seaver Statue At Citi Field

Posted: Updated:

Although Met's all time great, Tom Seaver never played a game at Citi Field, he'll now be remembered there forever.

The New York Mets announced that a statue of their Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver will live outside Citi Field. What used to be 126th street was renamed to "41 Tom Seaver Way" on Thursday.

A release from Mets’ COO Jeff Wilpon for the address change ceremony noted, “The address change to 41 Seaver Way has been in the works for a long time and is the first of our efforts to honor Tom. Today we are also officially announcing that we have commissioned a statue in honor of Tom that will be coming soon to Citi Field.”
