CBS Reality Competition Shows to Have Phillies Ties

Phans, with more than 3 weeks until the first televised spring training game, CBS will have your loosely related Phillies programming. Starting Thursday night, the new season of Survivor will feature Kyle Kendrick's lovely fiance Stephenie LaGrossa. Also, beginning on Sunday evening, the new season of The Amazing Race will feature former Phillies third base coach Steve Smith and his daughter.

Stephenie will proudly be rocking a Phillies cap on the 20th season of Survivor, which will feature two tribes of previous Survivor contestants, competing against each other, in a "Heroes vs. Villains" format. Previews for the premiere episode tease that there are two injuries in the very first competition, one of which is a dislocated shoulder. Sources inform me that Stephenie suffered a shoulder injury early on (possibly due to a preexisting condition) and that she is certainly one of the injured competitors. No word on how it effects her game play. You'll have to tune in to find out if Steph can make it to the end, as she did in the show's 11th season when she was runner up.

Stevie Smith and his daughter Allie will compete as a team on the 16th season of The Amazing Race. Smith was the third base coach for the 2008 World Series Championship team, but he was not brought back to help the champs defend their title. Smith was hired this off-season to coach third base for the Cleveland Indians. The Smiths will be one of 11 teams vying for the top prize of $1 million. Teams race throughout the world competing in challenges or "roadblocks". The team that finishes last in each week's leg of the race is usually eliminated. Check out the Race to see if Smith can wave home some big bucks, or if he and Allie will get thrown out at the plate, like sooo many Phillies did under his watch.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Former Phils prospect Cozens stops looters in AZ

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
