Take a ride on a golf cart with Chuck, a Michigan native who recalls the Tigers of old. We ride from the parking lot at the Boys and Girls Club in Bradenton to McKechnie Field to watch the Phillies play the Pirates. A few of the Phillies regulars made the trip south to Bradenton from Clearwater, including Jimmy Rollins, Placido Polanco, Raul Ibanez, and Ryan Howard. Most of the Pirates regulars played, but the Phillies won 7-4.
BallparkBob takes a look at the right field battle between Domonic Brown and Ben Francisco and the possible role that Raul Ibanez plays in this competition.
