To make Brandon's baseball practice easier, his parents decided to construct a barn behind their home so that he would have more room to work out. His mom supported his American Legion Baseball years during his adolescence, even if he had to travel to different US states for many hours.

Ron taught his kids about bull riding from a young age; none loved it more than young Brandon. Even his favorite movie is a story revolving around rodeos, 8 seconds.

Brandon would accompany his father while he held a job at Frontier Days Rodeo. They spent their time riding and feeding the bulls. 

Ron has liberal thinking regarding his children's careers, i.e., he is happy with whatever his kids do if that is what really interests them. Brandon stated to the New York Post, that his father did not enjoy his accounting job and did it for the household's financial security.

Ron Is Brandon's Proud Supporter

Ron Nimmo is a baseball enthusiast who has been Brandon's number one fan since the beginning.

He attended Brandon's MLB game against the Colorado Rockies on 19 June 2018 at the ballpark, where Brandon scored two home runs. 


Ron stated how his son had dreamt of playing in the big leagues since childhood. He expressed his pride over Brandon's hard work and commitment to get to this level, remarking how Brandon never had a quitting nature and would dig in further even if he failed multiple times. 

Ron was also present for the match between the Chicago Cubs and NY Mets on 3 July 2016. He told how Brandon was only two years old when he started to hold the bat and ball. Brandon was competitive, as the Mets outfielder desired to be better than his older brother.

Moreover, Nimmo also fondly remembers his mom throwing the ball in the Windup Wilma style. He believes that Patti has a great pitch, which was a reason for his good strike zone genes.

At seven years old, the Mets outfielder rode his first calf at his grandfather's ranch in La Junta. It had become a tradition for men to ride a calf at the ages between six and eight.

However, Brandon had an injury from a fall, which made him quit his passion for professional bull riding and solely focus on baseball.
