Since the Phillies have the day off today, I thought I would share some more Spring Training photos with you. These fall under the categories of weird stuff, accidents and a whole lotta Shane Victorino.
Let’s start with Shane! 1st photo: Note that his glove has a special engraving, “Kaipo” – in Hawaiian, this means “Sweatheart.” How cute is that? 2nd photo: A Yankees fan taunts Shane after catching a home run ball:
Fans with possible brain damage – This first one is what happens when you have had one too many beers and a home run ball decides to visit:
And this one is not so funny; good news though, after getting beamed with a foul ball, this kid was ok!
YMCA Oddity: Apparently, the ground crew at Yankees Spring Training are required to do the YMCA for the fans between innings. The music started and here is what happened next:
And as soon as Victorino got on base after witnessing the YMCA insanity, here is what happened after that:
So how many of you are singing “YMCA” right now? :O)
Another fun baseball event; the breaking of the bat. Adam Dunn, Team USA, demonstrates. Note the bat handle in the first shot:
And finally, Derek Jeter and David Wright, brought together by the weirdness that is the World Baseball Classic. After a game win, the two were caught fist bumping; but not without a safety divider. Adam Dunn steps in to keep the weirdness from getting out of hand.
I hope you enjoyed the photos! The Phillies will be back on the diamond tomorrow at 1:05pm to face the Yankees.
