Edwin "Eddie" Boison, known as Cow-Bell Man, is a stadium fixture for the New York Mets.[1] He can be seen at nearly every home game at Citi Field, wandering around the concourses while banging a cowbell. He typically wears personalized jerseys with the sobriquet Cowbellman. In 2009, he wore a batting practice jersey with the number 15, which from 2005-2011 was assigned to outfielder Carlos Beltrán.[2][3] Prior to the Mets' acquisition of Beltran, Cow-Bell Man's jersey featured the number 10, worn by Endy Chavez. Cow-Bell Man is usually seen strolling around Citi-Field interacting with the fans. As of September 2015, Cow-Bell Man wears a Met jersey with "Cow-Bell Man" and #21. Now wears 52 like Cespedes.[when?]
