It is day 6 of the Phillies Phantastic Voyage and we are sailing around the Caribbean on our way to the Bahamas. Yesterday, after a sunny day on the island of St. Thomas, the Phillies group engaged in a trivia competition. Here are a few of the questions we were asked…see how many you can answer! I will post the answers at the end of this entry.
1. How many times in his Phillies career did Steve Carlton strike out 300 batters or more in a single season?
2. What 3 team names have the current Phillies team gone by?
3. Which Phillies pitcher struck out 300 batters or more in a season, 2 seasons in a row?
Today the Phillies held the autograph session for the fans. Shane Victorino, Greg Luzinski, Tom Burgoyne (Phanatic’s friend), Ryan Madson, Scott Palmer (broadcaster) and JC Romero all signed:
At the end of the autograph line, a few of the AAA reps, Holland America staff and JC’s wife Erin got in line to get autographs for themselves. When Erin Romero reached JC who was at the end of the autograph line, she handed her husband several items to sign. In the photos below, you will see her handing him a head shot to sign. After that, he leans forward to sign HER instead. Her reaction is in the photo below:
JC & Erin are not only the cutest couple, they are super nice and lots of fun. We have all been blessed to have them aboard with us :o)
And here are a few photos of what I have been up to besides the baseball stuff. The photo to the left is the rainforest in Puerto Rico (El Yunque); then you will see a close-up shot of an iguana and a photo of me and two others preparing to scuba dive in St. Thomas:
That is all for now! More photos and video are to come…tomorrow we are in the Bahamas and then Saturday we are heading home. Talk to you all again soon!
