Most Cardinal fans have probably never met Tommy Pham and yet many might say they feel like they have. It is one of the more fascinating things about the Cardinals center fielder - his ability to form a connection to people he has never met. When he does interviews, he answers frankly and honestly. His words are never empty; he seemingly never makes a statement he does not intend to back up with action. Tommy Pham never holds anything back, on the field, in the locker room, on Twitter, and that is an admirable quality. It is one that, according to Dan McLaughlin of Fox Sports Midwest, has earned him the respect of his teammates. Per 101 ESPN:

“To a man, I know they all respect the way he plays really hard and he cares,” McLaughlin said. “We all have quirks, right? That’s Tommy. Tommy is going to wear his emotions on his sleeve and he’s going to play with a chip on his shoulder and that’s just the way it goes.

Tommy Pham is someone people love to root for. To see him not only succeed, but thrive... it has been pretty fun.
