More Shane Moments

More Shane Victorino moments from fans:

“My favorite time was when Shane came to the Celebrity Bowling Classic sponsored by Garry Maddox and Drew Katz.  Shane was the celebrity on our alley.  He signed autographs & had pictures taken all night.  He is a very good bowler & laughed & had as good a time as anyone else.”

“Our season tickets are in the outfield between Jayson and Shane.  It’s fun to watch the occasional banter between them.  During one game, Jayson was moved to left field.  At the top of the next inning, he started heading out to right field as usual.  The fans in our area started pointing towards left field, but he paid no attention.  Shane came over to Jayson, wrapped an arm around him, and escorted him to left field, laughing the whole way.”

“Favorite Shane moment?  How about a HUGE GRAND Slam off CC Sabathia last year.  Talk about important.”

“How about that walk-off hit tonight?? Really, every recent moment with Shane is my new favorite….he just gets better & better.”

Thanks everyone for contributing.  Keep ‘em coming and don’t forget to vote before 4 o’clock this afternoon.

I’ve got a Shane moment that predates him even being a Phillie.

The first time I ever heard of him was when he was in the Dodgers organization, playing for their then-AAA team, the Las Vegas 51s, back in ’03. I was out there with a friend of mine. Before we decided to go club-hopping, we checked out a game at Cashman Field.

I saw his name on the board when he was up to bat. Being Italian, thought he was a “paisano” just like me. Of course, I later found out he’s not. My first impression of him? Scary fast, and he’d turn out to be a good major leaguer.

Fast forward to when he got picked up by the Phils in the Rule 5 draft a few years back…man, that name sounds familiar! Sure enough, I still have the 51s program from that day. I feel like I knew him way before he ever became a household name (and my wife’s favorite ballplayer) over here.
