Another road game and being a Sunday, Bright House Field is extremely calm and quiet this afternoon. Took advantage of the peace to write a couple of Yearbook stories on Richie Ashburn and Robin Roberts. Their debuts with the Phillies came 60 years ago. Yes, 60.
Two buses taking the players to Tampa left at 9:45 this morning. Those not on the trip, worked out and had some rare time off this afternoon.
What does a player do when there is down time? Greg Dobbs: “Grab a bite to eat with a couple of the guys, catch an afternoon movie and then the best part of the day, go to the airport to pick up my wife and daughter. They are flying in from California this evening. Can’t wait to hug my girls.”
Tomorrow, a 9:30 a.m. “B” game with the Pirates and a 1:05 afternoon game with them. Those in the morning game need to be dressed by 8:30. Bright House Field gates will open at 9:30 so there’s a chance to see two games tomorrow for the price of one, well, sort of two games.
Afternoon game will be broadcast on this website.
Favorite TV Show Growing UP?….. “GI Joe”, reports Jayson Werth.
