Scenes From Phillies Minor League Spring Training-March 23

It was a “camp day” in Phillies camp. Camp days can be either one of two types of days: drills in the morning/afternoon off or drills in the morning/intra-squad scrimmages in the afternoon. This was the latter.

With four Phillies teams playing, it’s hard to try to see who’s playing/not playing for the day, get to the right field at the right time to see which player you want to see and at the same time, look over who isn’t playing so you can try to say hello or meet those players. I got to see some good plays, see old friends and make a few new friends.

So I have a few pictures that I took to show the action.

2016 Minor League Work Group List Released

 The minor league workgroup was released and here it is, hot off the presses: 

If you have questions about the list, I’ve answered the most common ones HERE.

Opening Night

It’s opening night! We got to Dunedin stadium and there was a line…

The Threshers line up—I love that Anthony Phillips wore high socks–Parr, Mora, Lavin, Martinez, Charles, Ferdinand, Carmona, Moore, Serna, Kleven.

It’s now in the bottom of the sixth and we’re losing 7-0.

Oh well, tomorrow’s another day.

EDITED TO ADD:
Just after I wrote that, I walked out of the seating area and was about to leave when a foul ball came over the building and smacked the pavement not 10 feet from where I was walking! Not only that, but then I went to pick it up from where it bounced and I found another! BONUS!

Introducing the 2014 Clearwater Threshers

Tonight was one of my favorite nights of the year, the introduction of the Clearwater Threshers to the season ticket holders.

It’s a catered affair and after dinner, the team is introduced to the season ticket holders. You can see the video HERE

I had fun trying to take pictures before the introductions with my friend, pitcher Colin Kleven making fun of me….

I got a nice panorama of the team..

20140402-214817.jpg

I got to talk to several players and they seem like a good group of guys, I can’t wait to see them play this year.

There are a lot of benefits to being a season ticket holder other than the party, like this card:

20140402-213759.jpg
As a season ticket holder, this card gives us entry to any Florida State League stadium to watch the Threshers play, while they are ON THE ROAD. It’s sort of neat knowing you could conceivably go to every Threshers game for one prepaid price.

I’ll use it for the first time tomorrow night as the Threshers open the season on the road, a whole five miles from Bright House and three blocks from my house in Dunedin…

Final Workout Group Posting

Here it is…

20140324-113837.jpg

Welcome to the 2013 Clearwater Threshers

20130403-205843.jpg

Tonight, Baseball Ross and I had the pleasure of being introduced to the 2013 Clearwater Threshers at the party held for season ticket holders.

It was a great time and I feel fortunate to get reacquainted with a few returning players as well as meet a few new ones. I recorded a video of their introductions so that you could enjoy it.

I like these guys. They’re obviously talented but they also seem to have quite a bit of personality.
