NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Mets have no shortage of celebrity fans — see Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Kevin James and Bill Maher — but the one with the most team spirit is likely Jim Breuer.
The stand-up comedian and former “Saturday Night Live” star has been documenting New York’s season on Facebook, and on Monday night he joined The 7 Line Army in Baltimore for the series opener against the Orioles.READ MORE: Group Of Women Accused Of Assaulting, Robbing Victim After Inviting Her To Party On Instagram
Breuer joined the superfans on a bus to Camden Yards.
Jacob deGrom was brilliant yet again for the Amazin’s, but things got dicey in the ninth inning. The Orioles scored twice to make it 5-3 before closer Jeurys Familia got Manny Machado to ground out to third base for the final out.

Manager Terry Collins was also impressed.
“It’s electric,” the skipper said. “Our fans, they’re incredible. Wherever we go, we had them in Florida. The 7 Line was here tonight, they’re unbelievable when they show up. “You’ve gotta like it. If you’re a player, my gosh almighty. How can you feel tired or fatigued when you’ve got that atmosphere going? It’s really cool.”
The Mets will look to sweep the quick two-game set on Wednesday night. Noah Syndergaard will get the ball for New York.
