I had read an interview with Nick elsewhere where he talked about his high school football career, so I wanted to get him talking more about that. I also wanted to ask all of these Reading guys coming up about the playoffs and their experience on a winning team last season. The Phillies have wanted to create a winning environment in the minors as their young talent prepares to help the big league club. Last season, the IronPigs were the only team in the system without a winning record, and one of only two who didn’t make the playoffs. Will this be our year?
Anyway, Nick seems like a soft-spoken, genuine guy who will quickly become a fan favorite at Coca Cola Park. I also had him as my pre-season pick to get promoted to the Phillies and have impact-success there, as well this season. We’ll have to see if that comes to fruition, but I’ll be cheering for him. Expect to see him playing center field most every night, and batting first or second. It should be fun to watch.
