Baseball Ladies Road Trip-Chase Utley in Clearwater 08.14.10


Chase takes a swing in the on deck circle. Love those high socks!

Baseball lady Kelly and I had the good fortune to be able to catch Chase Utley’s rehab-stint debut with the single-A Clearwater Threshers last night. He played five innings and went 1-for-3 at the dish with a triple as the Threshers thrashed the Tampa Yankees 9-1. He looked comfortable in the field, but a little tenative in his first two plate appearances as he hit a soft grounder to first and later struck out looking. That would change in the fifth inning when he hit a deep fly ball that was misplayed by Yankee centerfielder Melky Mesa.

Chase continues his rehab today as the Threshers face the Lakewood Flying Tigers.

Kelly and I had a great time at Bright House Field last night. The Tiki Bar was packed, the fireworks display was impressive, and we even met a minor celebrity (you’ll see him in the first 10 seconds of the video posted below):

It's okay guy. I'm sure it was a quality start.

  1. If Utley were not attractive, this trip would not have been made.

  2. That’s not me! But, yeah. Totally agree.
