I’ve been listening (and enjoying) ballpark heckling for thirty years, but this is a new one to me:
As the Mets took batting practice, a man in a green Mets T-shirt began to use his booming voice to heckle people in the organization who were on the field.
The trainer Ray Ramirez, who was talking on his cellphone near the cage, did not escape the man’s wrath.
“Team Hamstring,” the man bellowed. “Let’s get some real physical therapists in here.”
Tough crowd. But the Mets’ clubhouse is a tough place to be these days, especially if you’re a hamstring, as the article points out.
I’ll leave it to the Will Carrolls and Rany Jazayerlis of the world to determine if, as the article examines, there is something amiss with the Mets’ training staff. In the meantime, Ray Ramirez and his colleagues had better develop a thick skin to get through the rest of the season.
