Philles Icon Dallas Green Has Passed Away

Hi everybody,

Just wanted to share the sad news of the passing of Phillies Icon Dallas Green on Tuesday (March 22nd).  Green was the manager of the Phillies (1979-1981) when they won their first World Series in 1980 and served as a scout with the Phils later in his life.  Green also managed the New York Yankees (1989) and New York Mets (1993-1996) as well as serving as the General Manager of the Chicago Cubs (1982-1987).  He was elected to the Phillies Wall of Fame in 2006.  Rest in Peace Skipper and thank you!

Throwback Thursday (3-23-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's Throwback Thursday moment was from last year when my friends were in Haddonfield, NJ and stopped at the British Chip Shop for lunch.  Unfortunately I was unable to attend but they did bring me back some fish & chips as well as lots of British snacks from the gift shop across the street.

I hope this will get me through the day...

Chase Utley Photo of the Week (3-22-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's photo is a goofy picture that I found online of Chase and his wife Jen.  I'm pretty sure that i was taken sometime between 2010-2012 when Chase was injured and out for awhile.  I'm not sure who took the pic or added the comedy bits but if I ever find out I will give them the credit that he/she deserves.

Throwback Thursday (3-16-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's Throwback Thursday moment was from a couple years ago on a cold winter morning when i was eating a cinnamon roll that my friends got me.  That delicious treat sure hit the spot and I look forward to getting some more of them someday.

Chase Utley Photo of the Week (3-15-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's photo is a shot of Chase high-fiving former Phillies bench hitter/1st Baseman Mike Sweeney during the 2010 Season.  Sweeney was traded to the Phils in August to play some 1st base and pinch hit during the stretch run.  From all accounts he was a great teammate and I'm sure him and Chase got along well.
