Happy birthday to North Dakotan Chris Coste

04 Feb

New York Mets Catcher Chris Coste is celebrating his 37th birthday today and we hope this North Dakota son has a great day and awesome season.  Coste is originally from Fargo and from 1996 to 1999 played for the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks.  His first book, “Hey … I’m Just the Catcher: An Inside Look at a Northern League Season From Behind the Plate” was published in 1997.

2008 saw the release of Coste’s second autobiography, “The 33-Year-Old Rookie:  How I Finally Made it to the Big Leagues After Eleven Years in the Minors.”  The book cronicles Coste’s professional career through his third season (2008), the year he won a World Series with the Philadelphia Philles.

2010 will be Coste’s first season with the Mets.
