The ability to make a successful go of transferring one's life from one side of the globe to the other is an impressive feat. Phil Entzminger is just such an individual. He grew up in Salzburg, Germany. He loved his culture and heritage, but the education offered to him in the states was the one he believed would help him reach his career goals. He went to school in New York City, New York. It was here that Phil Entzminger made his transition from German to New Yorker. While he did not make New York, NY his permanent home, he will always consider himself a Mets fan and looks fondly on the time that he spent there.
