For the early part of the season, Ryan Church was the Mets’ best position player in early 2008. A concussion pretty much ruined his 2008 season, but no Met fan can fault Ryan Church’s heart.
I wrote to Ryan Church in early April, just as soon as I was able to find a card picturing him in a Mets uniform. I guess he started working through his fanmail during the last homestand of the season, because I got my card back in today’s mail.
Hopefully Church will have an injury-free 2009 and be a part of a great season to open the Mets’ new ballpark.
