**Phillies will be holding a mini camp for pitchers in Clearwater, Jan. 13-17. Around 15 pitchers will be invited.
**An amazing 85,000 kids have committed to the Be A Phanatic About Reading program this winter.
**Three spring training trips to Clearwater are now sold out. Same for the Phillies cruise and Phantasy Camp.
**Top selling Phillies merchandise during the holidays were: Cliff Lee t-shirts, Wives’ Cookbook, Great Expectations video and holiday ornaments.
**When Pat Gillick was the Toronto GM, he built two World Champions. One of the key trades he made to solidify the club was getting second baseman Roberto Alomar from the Padres. Pat and Roberto will be inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in July. Very fitting that they will share the stage that day.
