The Seaver Statue Unveil Has Been Pushed to 2022

The Seaver Statue Unveil Has Been Pushed to 2022

The highly-anticipated (and long overdue) Tom Seaver statue will have to wait yet another year. According to reports Tuesday night, the artist simply needed more time to finish due to pandemic-related delays.

Yes, it should have never taken this long to happen from the start. Yes, it sucks to extend the wait even longer. And yes, it's the right move to wait until next year regardless of the reason.

Put your grievances with the statue not being erected years ago aside. The former decision-makers are gone. It would've been a special moment to unveil Seaver's statue in front of The Franchise himself, but it is what it is - unfortunately. At this point, I want as many people as possible to be on hand when it comes time for the unveiling. And the sad reality is that might not happen this season.

If the world continues to progress, we should be ready to rock by Opening Day 2022. Hopefully, this fall. But I'll take what we can get this season. Nonetheless, having a full capacity crowd to pay their respect to The Franchise only feels right. This delay is the only Seave statue delay that has been for the best.

We all know about Steve Cohen's love of art. Would anyone be surprised if he saw the first rendering and decided to scratch the whole thing and build something up to his standards? I'm just speculating...

Under Cohen's watch, I have no doubt we'll unveil a Seaver statue that we'll be enjoying for Mets fans generations to come. Meet me at the Seaver statue in 2022.
