This was our first trip to Phillies Spring Training in Clearwater and better bet your ass we’re going to do everything possible to make it annual tradition!
Photos with all the guests who stopped by are posted in the gallery below, plus a few fun moments we had on the way to stadium. But first, a few priceless moments that happened after the show.
First thing that morning Gabe Kapler invited Preston Elliot to throw out the first pitch. Later that day the Phillies Manager spotted Preston waiting on the field and asked if he wanted to warm up. Our friend John who has worked with the team for 25 years said no manager has ever done that!
