The Mets and City of New York will formally honor Tom Seaver by permanently changing the address of Citi Field to 41 Seaver Way on June 27 in a ceremony that will air on SNY.
The organization also plans to rename the street between Northern Blvd. and Roosevelt Ave. to Seaver Way.
After announcing street name changes in early March, the Mets are expected to unveil plans for a statue honoring the former ace as well.
"We've been working on exploring a potential statue option for a couple of years in coordination with the [Seaver] family," Mets chief revenue officer Lou DePaoli said in March. "We won't be unveiling a statue this season."
Mets COO Jeff Wilpon will be in attendance, as well as select members of the 1969 team (Jerry Koosman, Cleon Jones, Ron Swoboda) and Seaver's children and grandchildren. Seaver, 74, will be unable to attend the dedication after retiring from public life due to dementia.
"Although he's unable to attend the '69 Anniversary, we are planning to honor him in special ways and have included his family in our plans," Wilpon said in March.
The dedication is scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. at the Executive Entrance at Citi Field. 126th street will be completely closed from Northern Blvd. to Roosevelt Ave. starting at 10 a.m.
