Tom Seaver Refused To "Stick To Sports"

From Matthew Callan, who writes "America's only Twitter account": Tom Seaver was 24 years old, in only his third major league season, not yet the star he became, a former Marine who had joined up straight out of high school, working in an extremely conservative industry, in the "capital" of a conservative country, voicing clear opposition to the Vietnam War in 1969, during the World Series.
