Fall Instructional League games are much like spring training games, they are more relaxed, coaches can end or “roll” an inning and pitchers often pitch only an inning.
Someone forgot to tell Phillies’ First Round draft pick Alec Bohm…he sent a ball almost out of Spectrum Field! He hit a blazing line drive that hit off near to top of the “F” on the sign above Frenchy’s Tiki Bar! It was a thunderous hit that even the sound was no-doubt-about it. I managed to catch this swing, landing and Bohm’s bat flip and run around the bases…
After a spring where the Phillies never released a workgroup player list, I was beginning to think that we would never find out the schedule nor roster for the Fall Instructional League.
Then this morning–SURPRISE! They actually posted it. Seeing as Alec Bohm will be there, I have a feeling that Baseball Ross and I will be checking in to see the goings-on at instructs. Watch this space and Baseball Ross’ blog for pictures and articles starting next week.
