Introducing Your 2015 Clearwater Threshers

It was a news-filled day with the additions of Koyie Hill to the coaching staff and Brodie Green to the roster.

The annual Season Ticket Holders’ Party was held tonight at Brighthouse Field. It was the best weather we have had in a week as the heat has seemed to abate a bit.

I now have official ID!
I now have official ID!

I was happily surprised to find that my ID has been issued in my nom de plume! I’ve had a name plate on my seat for two years, but I had to specially request it…so I was really happy to get this card!

Now, onto the team…

You can watch the video of the introductions HERE–and I really recommend you do as this years’ team has a lot of personality. They were a lot of fun to watch.

Times They Are A’Changin’–But Without New Group Lists

While there have been cuts the last two days at the Phillies camp, you’d never know it if you looked at the group lists they are handing out that were dated 3/10.

I was sad to see Lou Marson let go (again)…only to have the Phils pick up a 30-year-old catcher that had cut off three fingers and a thumb in a freak table-saw accident. Granted the digits were reattached…ETA Koyie Hill’s story about nearly losing his fingers can be read HERE

Hilton Richardson whom I wrote about last week is also gone. Additionally: Braden Shull LHP, RHP Geoff Broussard, Karl Galinas and OF Jonathan Knight.

Baseball Ross and I will check again for a new workgroup sheet tomorrow…hopefully no one else will be gone by then. I know it’s “the nature of the beast” but that doesn’t make it any easier.
