MLB’s Most Likeable Players-Fans Point of View

Question: What do Curtis Granderson, Ichiro Suzuki, Heath Bell, Brandon Phillips, David Ortiz, and Johnny Damon, all have in common?

Answer: They are all great guys who enjoy interacting with their fans, and giving back.

So, in honor of their general awesomeness, I decided to ask six fans (one for each player) the same three questions, to see their opinions on the coolest guys in baseball. Here’s what they had to say:

CURTIS GRANDERSON

Big thanks to Curtis Granderson fan Alexandra, for answering my questions.

1. What is it about Curtis that makes him such a likeable guy?

His personality and the way he plays the game. He plays with his heart and has fun with it. He’s a great guy on and off the field.

2. Since becoming a fan is there anything that Curtis has done on, or off, the field, that has stood out to you?

His Grand Kids Foundation and how he donates thousands of dollars worth of baseball gear to schools around New York every year.

3. On a scale of 1-10, rank Curtis in terms of fan friendliness/likeability. (With 10 being highest.)

Definitely a 10. He’s a very humble guy. Every one likes him even more after meeting him. He loves his fans.

ICHIRO SUZUKI

Big thanks to Ichiro Suzuki fan Luke, for answering my questions.

1. What is it about Ichiro that makes him such a likeable guy?

I think many people like him because he is a good guy who is always smiling. He also has a lot of talent, plays hard and plays the right way.

2. Since becoming a fan is there anything that Ichiro has done on, or off, the field, that has stood out to you?

I believe he helped get donation stuff going when the Earthquake tore apart Japan. I believe he’s just a really good guy.

3. On a scale of 1-10, rank Ichiro in terms of fan friendliness/likeability. (With 10 being the highest.)

I would say he is about an 8. Really friendly guy.

HEATH BELL

Big thanks to Heath Bell fan Zack, for answering my questions.

1. What is it about Heath that makes him such a likeable guy?

He’s basically a four-year-old in a grown man’s body. He’s happy and friendly, and he doesn’t behave like everyone seems to think that a professional athlete should.

2. Since becoming a fan, is there anything that Heath has done on, or off, the field, that has stood out to you?

He donated more than $200 to my charity fundraiser two years ago for Pitch In For Baseball. That was way above and beyond anything I ever expected from him.

3. On a scale of 1-10, rank Heath in terms of fan friendliness/likeability. (With 10 being the highest.)

I’d say somewhere around 14.

BRANDON PHILLIPS

Big thanks to Brandon Phillips fan Neiko, for answering my questions.

1. What is it about Brandon that makes him such a likeable guy? 

Brandon is a very caring and supportive person. He shows he cares about his family, friends, and fans, which makes him likeable.

2. Since becoming a fan is there anything that Brandon has done on, or off, the field, that has stood out to you?

The fact that Brandon has become a worldwide known baseball player, and has interacted more with his fans. That shows the person he is.

3. On a scale of 1-10, rank Brandon in terms of fan friendliness/likeability. (With 10 being highest.)

I would say 10 because once you really get to know him he’s the most fan friendly and likable player in the MLB.

DAVID ORTIZ

Big thanks to David Ortiz fan Jordan, for answering my questions.

1. What is it about David that makes him such a likeable guy?

He’s shown to be a generally nice guy from what I’ve seen from games. A gentle giant of sorts. Reference being an MLB fancave video where he is wearing his jersey walking around New York, looking for hugs.

2. Since becoming a fan is there anything that David has done on, or off, the field that has stood out to you?

I was watching a Sox v. Yanks game on ESPN back in May. Next to the dugout was a father wearing a yanks hat, and a son wearing a sox hat. He put his bat up, noticed the boy wearing a sox hat in yankee stadium, and pulled his bat back out and handed it to the kid. Awesome in my book.

3. On a scale of 1-10, rank David in terms of fan friendliness/likeability. (With 10 being the highest.)

Giving that kid his bat gives him a 10 in my book.

JOHNNY DAMON

Big thanks to Johnny Damon fan Teresa, for answering my questions.

1. What is it about Johnny that makes him such a likeable guy?

J D loves baseball. Would have stayed in Boston for less $$ but was forced to the Yanks. Success did not change him. He’s remained someone his mom could be proud of. Never whined, when not given the media attention he deserved. Just played ball.

2. Since becoming a fan is there anything that Johnny has done on, or off, the field, that has stood out to you?

I became a J D fan when he donated his hair to Locks of Love to help a child (while in Boston).

3. On a scale of 1-10, rank Johnny in terms of fan friendliness/likeability. (With 10 being highest.)

While in Boston a 10. Yanks a 5. Back up to an 8 these days.

So there you have it. Six different opinions, on six different players. I hope this entry has helped to turn you into a fan of all six players. When it comes down to it, they’re all GREAT guys.
