Well, they weren’t at CBP on Wednesday as they toured the MLB Network studios in northern New Jersey. They returned in time to work out in the indoor batting cages, a daily routine, before attending the Sixers game.
Today was devoted to media training. Ben Porritt, a media relations expert, oversaw the training and was joined by Leslie Gudel, Ken Rosenthal, Jim Salisbury, Chris Wheeler and the communications staff. The last item on the agenda is an interview session with Philadelphia media.
Others who were part of the four-day program included Joe Jordan, Mike Ondo, Frank Coppenbarger, Rob Holiday, Michael Barkann, Chase Utley, Brad Lidge, Susan Ingersoll-Papaneri, Dave Buck, Ruben Amaro Jr., Scott Sheridan, Shawn Fcasni and Ryne Sandberg. I’m invited to speak Friday morning about the history of the Phillies and our Alumni Relations program.
The young prospects got a small taste of big league life. Once in Clearwater, they’ll continue their climb to the top and uniform and locker in the clubhouse. That’s their dream.
