Before the Mets game on Saturday, Tim Byrdak made friends with a young Mets fan as he was signing autographs. Tim invited him for a trip into the Mets dugout and get an insiders look of where the Mets hang out during the game.
Scott from New York was treated to some Gatorade from the players cooler along with his selection of bubble gum and sunflower seeds to snack on during the game. He and his new favorite reliever had a quick photo op before Tim escorted him back to the stands. “I never met him before. I just thought I’d show him around” Byrdak said. All in a days work for your friendly, neighborhood lefty reliever.
