We’ve all seen the memes, photoshops, etc…likening New York Mets ace Matt Harvey to Batman.
He even graced the cover of Sports Illustrated a couple weeks back with the headline “Dark Knight of Gotham,” eliciting a tweet from Harvey revealing that he often dressed as Batman for Halloween as a kid.
I guess there was a reason why I was batman for probably 6 years in a row as kid for Halloween! Haha very thankful and honored!— Matt Harvey (@MattHarvey33) May 14, 2013
Apparently Harvey’s mom did some digging (you know he doesn’t have this picture just laying around), because he tweeted out this gem Monday afternoon leading up to his much-anticipated Tuesday night start against the New York Yankees.
