In Great Moments in Baseball, MLB pitching legend Tom Seaver recounts some of baseball’s most iconic moments, like Babe Ruth’s “called shot” and Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak. Seaver played in the MLB for 20 seasons, winning three Cy Young Awards and twelve All-Star nods. He played a key role on the Mets during their “miracle” season in 1969, which ended in their defeating the Baltimore Orioles in five games for the World Series title. Seaver was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992, receiving a then-record 98.84% of the vote.
