In addition to having the highest average fastball velocity of any starting pitcher last season, the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard now has another accomplishment under his belt: he successfully stole the Phillie Phanatic’s ATV.
While warming up prior to Monday night’s game at Citizens Bank Park, Curtis Granderson distracted the Phanatic as the two did some light stretching. Syndergaard creeped behind them and hopped into the ATV before speeding off towards center field. Realizing he had no escape, Syndergaard returned the ATV to the Phanatic in exchange for immunity.
