Irish Eyes Are Smiling
A perfect Clearwater Chamber of Commerce afternoon….sunny, warm, blue sky, green grass. Bright House Field was packed again. Normally, red Phillies garb dominates the crowd. Being St. Patrick’s Day, green competed with red today.
The offense that has been sputtering strung together a crooked number (more than one run) in the second inning to send the Phillies on their way to their second consecutive win.
RHP Chad Durbin turned in his best spring outing. The two-run homer in the fifth was hit by Aaron Herr, son of ex-Phillie, Tommy Herr.
The day meant Irish Eyes are Smiling.
Hugh Douglas, former Eagles great and a WIP radio personality, and Larry Andersen each threw out the first pitch. The catcher was Darren Daulton . . . Phillies Charities, Inc., will hold a silent auction before tomorrow’s 1:05 game against the Rays . . . Next three games will be broadcast on phillies.com . . . Thursday’s game will be televised on MLB.com . . . Season opener is two weeks from today.
Well, the first four responses to yesterday’s Phillies Insider quiz were incorrect. So, an autographed baseball from So (Taguchi) is still awaiting a home.
Favorite TV show growing up? “Simpsons”, Adam Eaton.
