Adam Morgan returns to the mound in Fall Instructional League Intra-Squad game

Today was one of the most beautiful days for baseball since spring training. As Baseball Ross and I took our seats under the overhang in the shade, we were pleasantly surprised when we saw Adam Morgan take the mound.

Morgan has been sidelined since last summer with a shoulder injury. He spent the better part of that year here in Clearwater rehabbing.

He looked good, seemed to have good control and his velocity seemed to build with every inning. Considering it’s been almost a year since he’s pitched in a competitive setting, it was quite an impressive return.

Here’s to hoping that next season will be his best yet.IMG_2131.JPG

Reggie Jackson was in the house!

Today is one of those days, one of those days I will remember the rest of my life. Today I met Hall of Famer, Reggie Jackson.

Today was the first day of the fall instructional league and the Phillies were playing the New York Yankees. I looked over and there was a gentleman wearing Yankees garb and it was Reggie Jackson, Mr. October himself!

I waited for a moment when he wasn’t talking to anyone and kindly asked for his autograph he was happy to oblige. It’s one of those moments that you can never forget, meeting a Hall of Famer like that, especially when you were expecting to. I didn’t have a ball with me but luckily, my good friend Charlie had an extra. So now, I have the autograph of one of the greatest players of the game!
