Tom Seaver Won The Cy Young Award Three Times!!!
Tom Seaver had some stiff competition for the ranking of ‘Best Pitcher in the NL’ during his glory days. From the likes of Bob Gibson, Juan Marichal, Ferguson Jenkins, and others, it was tough to separate yourself as the premier pitcher in the league with such strong competition.
Seaver managed to win the Cy Young Award during three seasons – 1969, 1973, and 1975. In those three seasons, it was Seaver’s high win totals, very low ERA, and ability to dominate batters that helped give him the title of ‘Best in the League’.
