The Fans

Finally, we miss the camaraderie of being together with each other! The New York Mets fan base out in right-center field is a passionate, and traveling set, of Mets fanatics. Their color-coordination and enthusiasm about their team permeates through us all – Even General Manager, Brodie Van Wagenen joined them last summer.

But for all Mets fans, 2020 has deprived us of one of the most anticipated seasons in recent memory for a base that has known more rebuilding years than winning seasons. In fact, if last summer taught us anything, it is how impactful a full crowd at the ballpark can be on its players, and the electricity the team derives from them.

Hopefully, in the 60-game sprint of this new, shortened season, fans will finally taste baseball once again while getting to watch the players we’ve missed so much since baseball activities ceased in mid-March.

And with a fresh crop of prospects set to resume their auditions for a spot on the big league roster (like INF Andrés Giménez or LHP David Peterson), Mets fans will have tons to watch, debate, and share about their team this July when Spring Training facilities resume baseball activities throughout the country.

And speaking of power, the fans may just get to see Yoenis Céspedes back in the lineup come Opening Day. Only time will tell, but if there’s one thing Mets fans have to a fault, it’s faith in their team and an undying hunger to watch them compete.
