New York Mets’ Brandon Nimmo Crushes First Career MLB HR (Video)

New York Mets youngster Brandon Nimmo is still smiling after crushing his first career MLB home run against the Chicago Cubs.

Though it’s already the next half-inning, and though he’s back out there in right field, New York Mets youngster Brandon Nimmo can’t stop smiling.

The reason for his enthusiastic grin is completely thanks to a home run – his first career Major League Baseball home run.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, with his club holding a 4-1 lead against the Chicago Cubs, Nimmo smacked this 3-run shot off Cubbies starter Jason Hammel (video above).

As you can plainly see, Nimmo could hardly contain his enthusiasm while rounding the bases.

Just a night ago it was Nimmo who acted as the catalyst in his club’s 4-3 combeack victory (picking up his first RBI), and now he’s collected his first big league dinger.

The Mets currently hold a 7-1 lead as the teams head into the bottom half of the 5th-inning.
