The world of baseball just lost one of its greatest, as the league continues to make its way through a historic season.
And sadly, one of the reasons for his passing also has to do with the reason his former team, like all others, are having to get creative.
Longtime New York Mets player Tom Seaver, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992, died Wednesday at 75.

According to reports, Seaver went in his sleep, from complications of Lewy Body dementia and coronavirus.
He certainly made his mark on the game, the league and his team, earning 13 All Star awards, in addition to getting the Cy Young Award three times.
Not one to be outdone, he went on to help the Mets secure a World Series title in 1969.
