Sad to see that Tom Seaver passed away. I was never a Mets fan but had a lot of respect for Seaver as a player and as a person.
I love this photo. It gives you a perspective of just how long a pitcher’s stride is. It’s LONG! Seaver was a “drop and drive“ pitcher whereas most pitchers (especially today) are “tall and fall.” I wonder if Seaver’s delivery was different enough from other pitchers that it gave him an advantage?
Empty stadium, eh?
