NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" often puts celebrities in odd positions, but Monday's show was especially amusing as it tested just how much New Yorkers know about one of their star pitchers.

In honor of the All-Star game being played in New York City on Tuesday, "Late Night" host Jimmy Fallon sent New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey out to interview fans about himself (video below).

Many fans had much to say about Harvey, but were unaware they were talking to him, notes the New York Daily News.

"What kind of advice would you give [Matt Harvey] if he were standing right next to you?" Harvey asked several fans.

"Matt Harvey is a good pitcher. Saw him naked in the ESPN The Body issue so it was kind of weird," said one baseball fan.

Another fan, wearing a Matt Harvey No. 33 jersey, said Matt Harvey was his favorite player, but failed to recognize him.

At one point, Harvey wore a Mets cap, but yet another fan failed to recognize him until the baseball star revealed his identity.
