- FINDING NIMMO
Mets fans were greeted at a June 2019 game at Citi Field with a fun representation of outfielder Brandon Nimmo as a garden gnome. No one knew that nearly four years later, a much larger version of the gnome would appear in the Mets dugout to help bring a little luck to the offense after four straight losses. Players piled offerings of sunflower seeds, gum and even a banana during a game in April 2023 — and it seemed to work as the Mets defeated the Washington Nationals in come-from-behind fashion, 9-8. Nimmo, the human player, led the charge with two hits and two runs scored.
