Noah Syndergaard: Driven

Syndergaard_front-2John Harper in the New York Daily News has an excellent feature on Noah Syndergaard.

My favorite Syndergaard quotes:

“I wake up every day with the idea of giving it everything I’ve got….

“I want to make it to the big leagues and pitch against the best. Hopefully I can make it to the Hall of Fame someday. Win a couple of Cy Youngs. Win a couple of World Series rings for the Mets.”

 

Other fun stuff from the article about Syndergaard:

- He didn’t enjoy his first year of baseball at age 7 or 8.
- He grew 4-5 inches to about 6’4″ his senior year, and combined with strength from the weight room pushed his fastball from 80 to 90 mph.
- He works his tail off in the weight room.
