11/19/10 – Dandy Little Glove Man

At the rate the Phillies are going right now, Chase Utley may be forced in to retirement and asked to head up the grounds crew and/or Phanatic duty. In just over one week, the organization has hired three former second basemen in some sort of coaching capacity. Yesterday, another ’11 Phantasy Camp Legend will be imparting his baseball knowledge on hopeful, up-and-coming Phillies. Mickey Morandini, a main contributor to the success of the popular 1993 World Series team, has left his head coaching position at Valparaiso High School in Indiana and had been tabbed to manage the club’s short-season single A affiliate, the Williamsport Crosscutters.

On a side note, the organization held a contest asking people to suggest a name for the team several years ago. I was extremely disappointed they did not accept my suggestion of the “Williamsport Scrapplers”. I tell you guys, that was pure gold.

Anyway, welcome back Mick! See you and Sammy in January…
