Come Meet Todd Hundley, Brandon Nimmo, and Chris Flexen at the QBC

Everyone is preoccupied with the holidays right now, but in January, you're going to start settling into the doldrums of winter. We're all going to need an oasis in this parade of barren, cold January and February days. The Queens Baseball Convention (QBC) is that reprieve.

What is QBC? It's the brainchild of our buddies Keith "Media Goon" Blacknick, Dan Twohig, and Shannon Shark. They were frustrated that the Mets didn't (and still don't) have annual fan fest like the majority of the teams in Major League Baseball, so they started their own. 

Players past and present make an appearance to greet fans and sign autographs, Mets-centric vendors are set up throughout the venue with their products available for sale, and there are panels all day long, with topics ranging from the uniform history of the organization to the current state of the franchise.

This year, Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo and pitcher Chris Flexen are schedule to appear, as well as former All Star catcher Todd Hundley.

On Friday, it was also announced that I'll be hosting this year's uniform panel, which I'm very excited about. Darren and I will also be around recording some content for the second season of Orange and Blue Thing.

QBC 2018 will take place on Saturday, January 20 from 11:30 AM-6:30 PM at Katch in Astoria. Tickets start at $50 and include at least one autograph from a player in attendance.

Spring Training Opening Day 5K Fun Run/Walk
Spring Training Opening Day 5K Fun Run/Walk

First off, this has zero affiliation with the Mets. This is not an official 5k. There is no fee. There are no prizes. This is not organized, endorsed, or promoted by the team. Run/walk wherever distance you want and head back. Whatever your path is, you're doing it, and that's an accomplishment in itself. Make your own goal, take that first step, and crush it.
