#ManCandyMonday Michael Conforto of the Amazing Mets

Yes, I’m a Mets fan. I have been for some time. It’s hard to be a Mets fan, but I love the underdog.

Conforto is an amazing young player and such a cutie. He shows grace under pressure, can hit like a more seasoned player, and is a good outfielder. I’m looking forward to seeing so much more of him.

Plus, he’s only the third player in baseball history to have played in the Little League World Series, College World Series, and Major League World Series. Plus, as a rookie, he hit two home runs in a World Series game, a feat that hasn’t been done since 1996.

I’m happy to say I’ll be going to a game in a week. Against the Nationals which should be fun since the Mets and Nationals are battling for first.
