If it wasn't for 11-year-old Jacob Resnick, Jose Reyes' home run on Tuesday night would have been nothing more than another round-tripper for the Mets shortstop.

During the Mets-Marlins game at Citi Field, Resnick was invited up to the booth to call an inning. During his broadcast debut in the bottom half of the third, Reyes ripped one over the left field wall and Resnick took care of the rest, as seen in the video above.

Mets unlikely to offer Jose Reyes 7 year contract

“Despite the decision not to trade Reyes, the Mets remain highly unlikely to offer their superstar shortstop the “Carl Crawford money” that many in baseball believe he will command, sources say.

11-Year-Old Is The Best Broadcaster The Mets Have Ever Had

New York Mets Playoff Chances: Is It Time To Raise the White Flag?
