Relationship between Nancy and Tom Seaver

Nancy and Tom were both students at Fresno High School, where Seaver was the star baseball player. They had been dating since they were teenagers before getting married on June 9, 1966.

In 1966, Tom began his professional career in the Minor Leagues. The following year, he was acquired by the New York Mets and went on to become one of the greatest players in MLB history.

His first four years in the industry were marked by rapid advancement, which took a physical toll on him. Met management issues were taking a mental toll.

So, after the 1970 season, Tom and Nancy decided to go on a much-needed road trip. Nancy’s grandparents in Kansas were among those they visited during their 29-day trip.

When Nancy’s name was brought up in the “Midnight Massacre,” Seaver initiated a last-minute trade to the Cincinnati Reds.

Though he left the Mets on a sour note, he was undeniably one of the Reds’ best players. That’s why Nancy was outraged when the Mets refused to install statues of Tom and other Mets legends outside Citi Field, as is customary in baseball.

Nancy and Tom Seaver’s Children

During that cross-country trip, Tom and Nancy were expecting their first child. Sarah, their oldest daughter, was born soon after. Anne Seaver, their youngest daughter, was born on October 28, 1975.

After Seaver’s infamous trade to the Reds, the family relocated to Cincinnati. He returned to California with his family after spending the majority of his career there.

Tom and Nancy were the owners and operators of Seaver Vineyards in Calistoga. “Nancy’s Fancy” and “GTS” are the vineyard’s two cabernets.

Sarah Zaske and Anne Buckley, the Seaver daughters, are married. They both assist in the operation of the vineyard and winery. Among her other jobs, Anne is a local yoga instructor.
