2011 Phillies Phantasy Camp Reunion Night

I was only ever on a Major League Baseball field once in my life. Standing on the concrete field they called “turf” at Veterans Stadium for photo day in 1989 was one thing. This was completely different. Just like every other moment I’ve had during this Phantasy Camp experience, you could not get that goofy grin of mine off my face during this reunion. The grass was perfect, the dirt was clean, the Fall-like weather was awakening, and Dan Baker’s voice boomed down from the heavens. This was a religious baseball experience.

On that photo day in 1989, my dad was by my side. Without a doubt, he was with me again on a Major League field.

And he would have the same goofy grin.

My number was retired across from the visiting team’s clubhouse. They think of everything.
