Player Spotlight: Meet Daniel!


Phillies Baseball Academy is back for round two at Holy Cross High School in Delran, New Jersey, and Daniel is one of our all-star campers in attendance!

Danny traveled to PBA all the way from Buckeye Cove, North Carolina.  On the field, Danny can be found behind the plate playing his favorite position, catcher.  When Danny is off of the baseball field you can find him swimming or talking to someone about his favorite player, Pete Rose.  The six-year-old could quite possibly be Pete Rose’s biggest fan!

This is Danny’s first year at PBA and he is tearing up the Rookie division. Danny shared with us a fun fact about himself that when he attends weddings he does not tuck his shirt in, but when Danny is playing baseball he makes sure to tuck his shirt in like the pros at all times! He is very excited to go on the ballpark trip to Citizens Bank Park and see all of the professional jerseys hanging in the players’ lockers.
