The Phillies have expanded their presence in the Gulf Coast League (GCL) by adding a second team.
Phillies East team, led by Roly DeArmas played today and won over the Yankees. Tomorrow the West team led by Nelson Prada play their first game.
The Phillies #1 draft pick, Alec Bohm was taking batting practice today on Schmidt field.
For now, we are thinking he will be on the West team. He will likely move up after a few games, which is what they did with Adam Haseley last season.
I also took video of his last at-bat. See HERE.
I managed to talk to him after practice and he seems to be a nice guy. I’m excited to see him play and will be there tomorrow so stay tuned!
