I’m sure this video will be taken off YouTube at some point due to copyright issues, but it’s there now and I want to share the incredible, face-planting catch made by Phillies center fielder Aaron Rowand to end a bases-loaded threat by the Mets in the first inning of last night’s game at Citizens Bank Park. Rowand broke his nose and will have surgery today.
Meanwhile, Phillies phenom pitcher Cole Hamels makes his major league debut tonight in Cincinnati. I have been following his Triple-A starts rather closely on my Phillies site on Tribe.net. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to watch it because Katie and I are going down to South Street in Philly to catch They Might Be Giants at the TLA. And, of course, that means pre-show cheese steaks from Jim’s!
Just a side note…TMBG provides those catchy tunes being heard in Dunkin’ Donuts’ “America Runs on Dunkin'” series of commercials.
(By the way, sorry about the back-to-back baseball posts…that’s what happens when the Phillies win nine in a row and 10 of 11.)
