Shirley Seals Moore
July 13, 2008 Russell Seals was my brother and I have always been extremely proud of his accomplishments in the sports field. He was a standout player for Calhoun High School at Calhoun, Tennessee in basketball and baseball. He was given many awards and was the first amateur baseball player to knock a home run out of Engel Stadium in Chattanooga, TN. He was inducted posthumously in the Calhoun High School Hall of Fame in 1991, shortly after his death from cancer at the age of 44. He loved playing baseball for the Mets and even though his pitching arm gave out on him, he continued to support the Mets until his death and beyond. When he was buried, he was buried with a Mets team cap in his coffin that had been obtained shortly before his death. He will be remembered by his family and by his many fans.
October 13, 2008 Russell was my stepfather. He married my mother, Gail, when I was 7 years old in 1986. I was only 12 when he passed away. I am trying to find out more about the man I've always known as my stepfather . If anyone can send me anything at all about him I'd appreciate it. I would especially like to know about his ball carer and if there was ever a ball card made of him.
March 3, 2011 I didn't know him, but looking at his stats, I would say he had a lot of zip on the ball. Must've had some arm problems. Sorry to hear that he passed away.
June 23, 2016 Russ was a teammate of mine in Pompano Beach in 1972. Great guy and good friend. Had a terrific fork ball which was his best pitch. He was our go-to guy out of
the bullpen that year.I was sorry to hear that he died very young.
