Hey Folks. I have the task of dispensing some news about QBC 2018. There is some Bad News, yes. But, I think the Good News more then makes up for itI mean really, really good. Great even. I’ll go bad news first. Lee and LJ Mazzilli had to pull out of the QBC. Once we found out about thisthe QBC Brain trust mobilized to FIND a replacement. We didn’t want to FIND just any player. We wanted to FIND a player that would make itup to you that The Mazzillis aren’t going to be at the QBC. We think we might have FOUND that replacement.
Ladies and Gentlemen. Fans of that team from Flushing.The QBC is proud to announce that after we have searched and searched.WE HAVE FOUND Brandon NIMMO!!!.That’s right folks. Current Mets Outfielder Brandon Nimmo is coming to the QUEENS BASEBALL CONVENTION on Jan 20, 2018 at Katch Astoria in Astoria Queens. Nimmo will be doing an hour long panel and also an hour long signing.That was my PT BARNUM style announcement, let’s get the official word from the QBC Brain Trust.
"Due to previously undisclosed conflicts, both Lee and LJ Mazzilli have opted to not attend the 2018 Queens Baseball Convention. While we are disappointed in Mr. Mazzilli's decision, we at the QBC want to ensure that those who are attending our annual event have the best possible experience. Therefore we looked far and wide and in the end, we found NIMMO.
The QBC is excited to announce that current Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo will be attending our annual event on January 20, 2018 at Katch Astoria. Nimmo will take part in a panel/Q&A session followed by an autograph session for all attendees. Nimmo will be joining pitcher Chris Flexen who was already announced as a guest of the 2018 QBC.
Every year we try to make the QBC bigger, better, and more fun then the year before. Hopefully this announcement will help succeed in doing so. We will have another announcement hopefully next week of yet another player that will be joining us.
