11/11/10 – Sammy

Word came today that the Phillies hired Wall-Of-Famer Juan Samuel as their new third-base coach and outfield instructor. Samuel was such an electric player as a member of those mid-to-late 80’s squads. I was so happy for him this past season when he briefly held the role as interim manager for the Baltimore Orioles. It was just so cool hearing the phrase “manager Juan Samuel”. So even though I am already thrilled to be meeting Juan, it will now be extra special because of his new role in the organization. Welcome back Sammy!
