Thank you to everyone who came out and participated in Wednesday night’s batting practice at Campbell’s Field in Camden, NJ. For those of you who were not able to attend, here is a recap of the night:
Everyone started arriving around 5pm and hung out on the concourse. It was great to see new and old friends start to connect and catch up. As Rutgers-Camden wrapped up their practice, we made our way down to the field. As I am sure most of you baseball fans can attest, it doesn’t matter how old or young you are, or what kind of field or stadium you step on, but once you do, there is no better feeling then knowing you are about to play baseball.
Everyone settled in and put their gear down in the third base dugout. Conversations about past and future camps continued as everyone made their way out to the foul line to stretch and warm up their arms. For some, it looked like they were in mid-season form. For others, including the Phantasy Camp staff, it looked as though we were going to need a heavy dose of stretching and Advil the next day.
Everyone was split into two teams, and the game was underway. Again, it looked as though everyone picked up right where they left off in January. There were some great plays made in the field, and some balls crushed into the gaps. Needless to say, everyone had a good time, and there certainly were some good laughs.
After the game ended, we made our way up into the Diamond Club for some post game hot dogs and hamburgers. The conversations and stories of past camps continued and you could see how everyone was getting excited for camp in January. All in all, everyone had a good time and it was great to see some familiar faces. We, the Phillies Phantasy Camp Staff, want to thank everyone for an awesome night and we all look forward to seeing you all of you at the next event. And remember Go Phillies!
