Phillies #1 Draft Pick, Alec Bohm Prepares for GCL Season

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!

Aaron Nola to Debut for the Threshers Tonight

The Phillies 3.3 million dollar man is scheduled to make his first professional start tonight for the Threshers against the Lakeland Flying Tigers.

Baseball Ross and I plan to be there…however, every single time we have gone to Lakeland, the game has been rained out. Currently there is a forecast for storms inland (Lakeland is about an hour inland from Clearwater) so we shall see if it holds off long enough/ends soon enough for the game to be played.
