This easily could be the most amazin' at-bat of the entire season. Yep, in a spring training game. With his New York Mets teammates cheering, dancing and going crazy in the dugout, Luis Guillorme stood at the plate for more than 10 minutes against rocket-armed St.
Louis reliever Jordan Hicks, eventually drawing a 22-pitch walk Sunday. “It’s pretty cool,” Guillorme said. Guillorme took a called strike on the first pitch, then swung and missed at the second.
Quickly down 0-2, the backup infielder wound up hitting 16 foul balls -- nine in a row with a full count. Pete Alonso, Michael Conforto and the rest of the Mets got more and more animated with every curve, changeup and fastball, including a half-dozen at 100 mph.
