Prospect Colvin Arrested & Wassup Around the Bloggerhood

Phillies pitching prospect Brody Colvin was arrested late Saturday night on misdemeanor charges. The 19-year-old 2009 draft pick was charged with disturbing the peace, simple battery and resisting an officer when he was arrested late Saturday night in a bar district in his hometown of Lafayette, La.

Colvin was released and is scheduled to return for a court appearance on April 1st. The complete arrest report is not expected to be available for 5-10 business days.

Colvin, a righty pitcher, was a 7th round pick in the 2009 amateur draft and pitched in one game for the Gulf Coast League Phillies last year before being sent to the Florida Instructional League. Colvin was regarded as an early round talent prior to the draft, but dropped to round 7 because he was expected to attend college and not turn pro. The Phillies were able to sign Colvin shortly before the August deadline last year.

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

Wassup with dat? Vito Friscia edition

Friscia, image- Jay Floyd What's up with that Vito Friscia guy?  Well, he's a 24-year-old righty batting catcher that was drafted by the Phillies out of Hofstra University in 2019 with the team's final selection, 1200th overall, in the 40th round. But what's his deal?  Friscia opened the season with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, where, in 16 games, he notched a .264 batting average with a pair of home runs, five doubles and seven RBI.  Last week, when Triple-A Lehigh Valley needed a reserve backstop, Friscia was promoted to fill their void.  When Rafael Marchan returned from a short stint in the big leagues, Friscia was assigned to the Double-A Reading roster.   Is he just a backup catcher?  For now, it seems that's his role.  But check out this quote from BlueClaws skipper Chris Adamson from earlier this month when I asked him about which player stood out to him as a guy that deserved recognition, but may not be getting it. "Vito Friscia is a guy that, earl
