The New York Mets star catcher, Wilson Ramos, has now gone three weeks without playing baseball, and it has been eating at him each day. During this period, his hunger to get back on the field grows with each dull second he is separated from the field.

The veteran catcher has spent this time at his home in South Florida. He trains whenever possible and has been involving his kids to help him stay fresh if the season resumes. When talking with the New York Post, he spoke about how this layoff allowed him to understand why players are emotional when their career ends. He understands how tough it is to go from doing something every day, for a majority of life, to then have it stop when the player cannot produce anymore.

Ramos Workouts

With facilities and other baseball fields shut down due to the pandemic, Ramos gets creative with his workouts. His cousin in the Mets organization throws with him, and he ordered a portable batting cage to put in his backyard.

Along with Marcus Stroman, it seems like a majority of the Mets are keeping themselves ready for game action. The hope is to play games in May, but most importantly, everyone in baseball needs to keep themselves healthy.
