MIDTOWN (PIX11) – Matt Harvey, starting pitcher for the National Team in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game, hit the streets for Jimmy Fallon to ask unwitting Mets fans about their favorite player.
Because Harvey only has one full season in MLB under his belt, it’s not surprising few of the people going for a stroll in the park failed to recognize his pretty-boy face. However, they were quick to praise his stellar 2013 season, and even mention his impressive appearance in ESPN’s 2013 Body issue.
At one point, Harvey even dons a Mets hat and produces his own baseball trading card to drop hints to his interviewees. One person’s response? “He looks a little like you.”
The 24-year-old made his major league debut with the Mets on July 26, 2012. He grew up a Yankees fan in Groton, Conn. and gets to live out a childhood dream Tuesday night by throwing the first pitch for the National League.
