Jacob deGrom Carries on Seaver’s Tradition
The Mets honored legendary pitcher Tom Seaver following his passing on August 31, 2020. As part of the tribute, Jacob deGrom and the rest of the roster wore no. 41 sleeve patches. In deGrom’s final appearance of the season on September 26, the ace had a Seaver-like performance with 10 strikeouts. deGrom carried on Seaver’s tradition of dominant pitching in his Mets career: he and Seaver are the only players in franchise history with multiple Cy Young Awards.
