Jonny Gomes’ Biggest Fan Is His Brother

The St. Louis Cardinals Jonny Gomes has a brother, Joey, who was a minor league and independent league player for ten seasons, never making it beyond the Double-A level. Joey had been drafted in the 8th round by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2002, and had dreams of joining Jonny, who had been drafted by the Rays a year earlier, in the big leagues.

Joey is now a trainer and coach of amateur players in California, but took time off to join his brother for the post-season, since he is Jonny’s Number 1 fan.
