With Valentine’s Day history, the Phillies switched to blue jerseys today. They are the ones the team wears on road trips down here. Actually, Valentine’s Day didn’t have anything to do with the blue jerseys today. The real reason: jerseys are alternated every other day.
Much the same as yesterday’s schedule: pitchers at Carpenter Field and position players at Bright House Field.
Position players took BP and then the infielders took grounders. Pat Gillick was an observer, leaning on the batting cage. Focus was on watching Jason Donald take grounders at second, short and third.
Ryan Howard did his BP bit and then headed for the half-field for his daily fielding drills under Sam Perlozzo. Ryan’s really working hard on that phase of his game.
