Cowbell Man in 2015

Edwin "Eddie" Boison, known as Cowbell 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 nom de plume Cowbellman. In 2009, he wore a batting practice jersey with the number 15, which from 2005-2011 was assigned to outfielder Carlos Beltran.[2][3] Prior to the Mets' acquisition of Beltran, Cowbell Man's jersey featured the number 10, worn by Endy Chavez. Cowbell Man is usually seen strolling around Citi-Field interacting with the fans. As of September 2015, Cowbell Man wears a Met jersey with "COWBELLMAN" and #21, a number that is also worn by player Lucas Duda.
