Back In Business

OK, back in business again, now from sunny Florida.

While all is quiet at Citizens Bank Park and Bright House Field, Ruben Amaro and Marti Wolever (Asst. GM, Amateur Scouting) are ending a four-day meeting in Scottsdale on Wednesday in preparation for the first-year-player draft in June.

Joining the meeting are scouting coordinators and supervisors Mike Ledna, Billy Moore, Darrell Conner, Scott Trcka, Gene Schall and Eric Valent.

Phillies selections in the first three rounds are #16, 52 and 89.

Spring training gets underway when Ruben oversees an all-day meeting at Carpenter Complex on Monday, February 11. Ruben’s staff plus Charlie’s staff, other instructors and athletic trainers will review each player in camp during that meeting.

Alumni Notes
**Brad Lidge was at Citizens Bank Park recently for the Phillies Prospect Education Program. He spoke to the seven minor leagues about expectations and preparations.
Now retired, Brad has been enjoying the winter scene with his family in Colorado. 4-year-old Rowan has begun skiing lessons. Brad himself has returned to snowboarding for the first time in some 15 years. “The falls are more painful now,” he laughed. Through his agents, he had let the Phillies know he would like to officially retire as a Phillie as Doug Glanville, Mike Lieberthal and Pat Burrell have done. When told we would be glad to follow through, he smiled, “That would be very special. Thank you.” So, stay tuned.

**Ryan Sandberg is among the 2013 class being inducted into the Ted Williams Hitting Hall of Fame this Sunday at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

**1B Ed Bouchee, who played with the Phillies from 1956-60, died on January 23 at age 69 from Alzheimer’s. Deepest sympathy is extended to his family.

**Birthdays……28th, 1B Bill White (79) . . . 29th, 2B Davey Johnson (70) . . . 31st, RHP Joel Bennett (33) . . . Feb.1st, RHP Bob Conley (79) . . . 2nd, RHP Warren Brusstar (61) . . . 3rd, RHP Freddie Toliver (42), LHP Mike Wallace (62), OF Bake McBride (64).

**RHP Mark Leiter, on his favorite teammates: “I could never pick just one. There were some real nice guys on that team, Mike Lieberthal, Kenny Ryan, Kevin Jordan. Ruben Amaro, to name a few. Had a lot of great hanging out time talking baseball and life with them.” Leiter pitched for the Phillies in 1997 and 1998.

The Only silver lining about last year’s poor finish is that the Phillies will get third round talent at pick # 89, instead of about 15 to 20 places later, which was the case in recent drafts.

I remeber Ed Bouchee from the first Philly teams I followed But he could not have been 69 when he passed away. If so, he would have been 12 yrs old during his first season.

Thank you for applying some time to publish “Back In Business Phillies Insider”.
Many thanks once more -Beatriz
