The Meteoric Rise Of Mets LF Michael Conforto (Video)

Above is original video of New York Mets LF Michael Conforto stretching near the RF line at Citi Field.

The 23-year-old Washington State native emerged onto the New York baseball scene last July, batting .270, with 9 HR and 26 RBI, in just 107 at bats. His 2015 regular season productivity led to appearances in 12 postseason games, including all five World Series contests. Conforto belted 2 homeruns in Game 4 of the best-of-7 matchup with the Royals.

Conforto was named Pac-12 Player of the Year twice during his days at Oregon State. After being selected in the first round of the 2014 draft, Conforto found his way onto New York’s Major League roster in just over one year’s time.

Amazingly, the lefty batter is one of only three people to have played in the Little League, College and MLB World Series.

This season, the Seattle area product is hitting .280, with 5 HR and 19 RBI

When considering his immediate impact with the Mets, combined with an incredibly impressive amateur résumé, there is no doubt that the sky is the limit for Michael Conforto. The man with the sweet swing could very well be one of New York City’s next great sports stars.
