Curtis Granderson Signing Autographs At Citi Field (Video)

Above is original video of New York Mets RF Curtis Granderson signing autographs, prior to a recent matinee game at Citi Field.

Thus far in 2016, the 35-year-old is hitting .213, with 6 HR and 11 RBI, for the first place Metropolitans.  For his career, Granderson has posted 269 HR and 753 RBI, during stints with the Tigers, Yankees and Mets, amid appearing in three All-Star Games. The Illinois native led the American League in RBI back in 2011.

After cups of coffee in 2004 and 2005, the lefty hitter became a regular in the Detroit lineup in 2006, helping the team to its first World Series appearance since 1984. Granderson was traded to the Yankees prior to the 2010 season, later signing a four-year/$60 million deal with New York’s National League franchise, after the 2013 campaign.

Long considered one of MLB’s good guys, Granderson is a renaissance man of sorts, serving as an international ambassador for the sport, advocating for inner city youth and even authoring a children’s book.
