NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mets pitching great Tom Seaver has died at 75.

Seaver died Monday from complications of Lewy body dementia and COVID-19. The Hall of Famer’s family announced in 2019 he had dementia.

Seaver was one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history and the resplendent star of the Miracle Mets 1969 championship team. He was a classic power pitcher who won 311 games.

Former Mets catcher Mike Piazza says Seaver “will always be the heart and soul of the Mets.” After retirement, Seaver tended to his Northern California vineyard.

George Thomas Seaver was 75.
