Although Phil Entzminger was born and partially raised in Salzburg, Germany, he considers himself a New Yorker at heart, since New York City is where he finished his childhood and where he graduated high school. That part of his childhood seems to be the most indelible, since he is now a strong lover of baseball and he has a rabid devotion to the New York Mets baseball club. Phil even speaks of his fondness for two favorite Mets’ players; Mike Piazza in the past and David Wright in more recent times. He even refers to Mets broadcaster Ralph Kiner as his favorite announcer.
His obsession with the Mets is so all-encompassing, to this day, Phil Entzminger and his family continue to make a pilgrimage to at Citi Field to take in at least one Mets game every single summer. It’s part of his role as a tried and true New Yorker. Following college, Phil Entzminger made the decision to stay close to his family and, because he loved New York City, he stayed on the East Coast of the U.S. to live and work.
Currently, Phil Entzminger is a practicing vegan, as he has been since 2017. He claims to be obsessed with foods that avoid the use of animal products, although he admits to not being as strictly vegan as he should be, eating some dairy occasionally, especially cheese. Phil Entzminger is a vegan because he believes it to be a key to a healthy lifestyle. He swears that his vegan diet has allowed him to think more clearly, have more energy and to feel stronger than ever before.
