Even though Phil Entzminger was born and partly raised in Salzburg, Germany, he primarily considers himself a New Yorker for the most part. That is, after all, where he spent most of his childhood and it is 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’s two favorite Mets' players are Mike Piazza in the past and David Wright more recently. Phil Entzminger also refers to Mets broadcaster Ralph Kiner as his favorite announcer. To this day, he and his family continue to attend at least one Mets game each and every summer.
After college, Phil Entzminger made the decision to stay close to his family and his beloved New York City, which is why he has remained on the East Coast for his entire adult life. He has learned to love golf, however. He considers it to be an enjoyable game, despite the hazards seeming to have a magnetic appeal at some points, and he has played near his old home at the Seltenheim Golf Course, as well as at the Kiagenfurt-Seltenheim course in Austria.
