The Extra Mile from Brandon Nimmo

The Extra Mile from Brandon Nimmo

Guys like Nimmo come around once in a while if ever to a Major League Baseball team. Not many saw it coming, but Brandon Nimmo is quickly becoming everyones favorite Met. 

His kool aid smile, infectious personality, positive outlook, and all around genuine nature is a breath of fresh air. He's great for the game itself, and us Mets fans are lucky to call him ours.

Since Brandon grew up just about 2 hours away in Cheyenne, Wyoming, he had dozens of friends and family on hand in the stands. They weren't disappointed, as he went 4 for 6 with two homers, one of them being the ever so exciting inside-the-parker.

After the 12-2 blowout, Brandon was predictably chosen to chat with Gelbs for the on field interview. 

This freakin' guy. 

Nobody would have blamed the man for bolting to the showers to clean up, and celebrate the big W with his family. Not Brandon.

Instead he greeted each and every fan who waited around for him. Signed autographs and took selfies until everyone was happy, THEN called it a night. 

 

I hit Cara up for the scoop. She told me he spent at least 15 minutes with the fans. "He’s incredible. Didn’t seem in any rush. A man asked him to sign his hat with “happiest man in baseball”. He did so with a big smile on his face."she said.

If they turn this latest 3 game win streak in to a run, I'm banking on Brandon's PMA having a big factor in it all.
