Campers who are already enrolled as participants for the 2016 Phantasy Camp experience came out to the first of four scheduled Batting Practice Sessions last night at Citizens Bank Park.
A group of 25 campers got to spend two hours inside the confinements of the Phillies’ major league ballpark and took live batting practice within the National League team’s hitting tunnels. Enrollees came from far and wide, travelling from Western Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and even Northern Virginia to attend the warm-up event.
Most of the Rookie participants who showed up to loosen their limbs hadn’t picked up a bat in months, and a few Veterans said they hadn’t held a baseball since last January when they made their 2015 Phantasy Camp trip. Regardless of the aches and pains they had to work through, each and every camper had a great time reuniting with new and former teammates.
