Chase Utley Photo of the Week (2-22-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's photo is a cool shot of Chase and Jimmy Rollins walking on the field.  If I had to guess, this occurred before the game as they were walking to the dugout.

2016 Little Chase Season Highlights (2-17-17)

Hi everybody,

Sadly this is the final 2016 season "highlight"...but it is a great one.  This "highlight" occurred when the Phillies TV Broadcast Crew were posing for their annual photo.  I decided to join in since one of my dreams is to someday be on Gregg Murphy's Phillies Notebook.  I even put on a tie so I could appear more professional.  Lucky for me the the broadcast team didn't seem to mind my appearance in one of their photos.

Don't I look professional?

I hope you have enjoyed all of my 2016 highlights.  With the baseball season starting soon, I'm sure there will be plenty of great new highlights in 2017.

Throwback Thursday (2-16-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's Throwback Thursday moment is from last October following the final game of the Phillies 2016 Season.  As is my custom...I take off my Phils jersey following the last game of the Phillies season and put on my Eagles jersey.  With Spring Training starting up...I'll soon be putting my Phillies jersey back on again.

Chase Utley Photo of the Week (2-15-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's photo is a shot of Chase and Ryan Howard just before the Big Piece is about to bat.  Judging by them slapping hands...I'm assuming that Chase scored a run.

Chase Utley Resigns With The Dodgers

Hi everybody,

Former Phils second baseman (and my hero) Chase Utley has resigned with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the 2017 Season.  The contract is reported to be a one year $2 million dollar deal.  I still miss seeing Chase as a Phillie but I wish him well with the Dodgers.

Charleston Photo of the Month (February 2017)

Hi everybody,

This month's Charleston photo is a shot of Fort Moultrie on Sullivan's Island from the observation deck of the Fort Moultrie Visitor's Center.  This pic was taken during my trip to Charleston last September and if you look carefully you will see Fort Sumter in the background.  Fort Moultrie and Fort Sumter were both vital to the defense of Charleston by Confederate forces during the Civil War.

2016 Little Chase Season Highlights (2-10-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's "highlight" is another shot during my filming in England of the hit TV series Sherlock.  This explosive scene took place in the season finale but unfortunately this shot with me and my good friend Little Sherlock didn't make the final cut.  Come to think of it....none of my scenes were in this season.  Maybe they will all be in the secret hidden fourth episode.  ;-)

Barely escaped that one...

Throwback Thursday (2-9-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's Throwback Thursday moment is another picture from my vacation to Charleston, SC last September.  This shot was taken outside the hotel we stayed at just before my friends and I left to return home.  I really miss being in Charleston and I hope to head back there again before too long.

2016 Little Chase Season Highlights (2-3-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's "highlight" occurred earlier in the season when my CSN pals Amy Fadool and Jen Daniels were hosting Comcast SportsNet.  The ladies were interested in getting as many bobbleheads as they could find so I made sure they got one of mine.  I guess my bobblehead made Ms. Fadool so happy that she decided to put an Annie wig on to celebrate. :-)
