Where does it say that he grew up a Mets fan? Not doubting it - just want to read more about him!



MMO: I thought I read somewhere that you were a Mets fan growing up, is that true?

Mark: Yeah, my dad was born in the Dominican Republic and he moved to New York and he was a Mets fan. I just grew up a Mets fan with him.

MMO: Who were some of your favorite players growing up?

Mark: I’d say my favorite players growing up were Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter. David Wright is also another one that I admire and is a great role model.
