Week 3 Closes at Citizens Bank Park

Phillies Baseball Academy’s third successful week of camp came to an end with a visit to Citizens Bank Park! During our visit, campers had the opportunity to tour the stadium, see the clubhouses and media rooms, play on the field and even hold BP in the same cages as the players.

Campers also got to meet the Phillies first base coach, Mickey Morandini. Mickey gave campers some advice on how to become better baseball players, talked about his professional experience, and answered questions that our campers had for him.

Lastly, campers got sit down in one of the media rooms with current Phillies pitcher, Jerad Eickhoff! Jerad also had some great advice to give to our campers about what it takes to become a pro baseball player and how he got to where he is with the Phillies today. He showed them a few of his favorite pitching techniques and answered the camper’s questions!

Overall, it was a very successful week at PBA! Stay tuned for more updates about the weeks to come!
