Brandon Belt dedicates remaining 2021 season to his grandmother after his grandmother’s death

QUESTIONS, NY – Brandon Belt said he wasn’t sure if his nanny, Margaret, was a baseball fan, but knew she was always a fan of him.

Margaret helped pay Brandon to play at the Showcase as a child, gave Brandon autographed baseball cards to his friends, and hosted memorable family gatherings over the holidays.

When Margaret died of COVID-19 on Tuesday morning, her grandson chose to play against the New York Mets because he believed she would want to have him in the lineup.

“I sent a message to my wife and parents before the game and told them I was struggling a little Belt,” Belt said on a Zoom call with reporters Tuesday evening. “My dad just reminded me that he wants me to go out there and do my best. I think that really pissed me off as much as he could. ”

In his first at-bat of the game against Mets right-hander Tyler Magill, Belt started a massive 431-foot home run straight into center field, which would have all the offense needed for an 8–0 victory.
