Former Mets RHP Tom Seaver was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on this day in 1992.
Seaver earned 98.84 percent of the vote, which marked the most until Ken Griffey Jr. landed 99.31 percent in 2016.
Seaver was the NL Rookie of the Year in 1967 and went on to help the Mets win the 1969 World Series. He was a three-time NL Cy Young Award winner, a 12-time all-star, and has the most wins in Mets history. Seaver's number, 41, was retired by the Mets in 1988, the same year he was inducted into the Mets' hall of fame.
In 2016, former Mets catcher Mike Piazza joined Seaver as the only other player inducted with a Mets cap. Former Mets catcher Gary Carter was inducted as a member of the Montreal Expos.
Seaver, who also spent time with the Reds, White Sox, and Red Sox, won 198 games with the Mets and posted a 2.57 ERA in 12 seasons with the team.
