Snow Ballz...

The countdown to Phillies spring training stands at just a week, but our home region is in the midst of a severe winter pounding. Avoiding cabin fever, phriends of PhoulBallz- Lexi, Arianna and Cara took to the yard and proceeded to play a little dress up with the snowman they built. This surely made me smile.

Unfortunately, I am not offering prizes to those who build PhoulBallz themed snow sculptures, but the Phillies' single A club, the Lakewood BlueClaws, definitely are doing something like that. Click this link and see about what you could do to get ready for baseball season and win some hot prizes from the South Atlantic League Champions!

Speaking of getting ready for a change of seasons, my very own little girl Moose (she's a rabbit, you see?) took to the outdoors this afternoon to check out the snow and to let the world know that baseball season can not start soon enough for her. Check out her pictures below.



What else is up on this snowy day, you ask? Well...

Scott Lauber, of The News Journal, has a sneak peek at the latest cover of the Sporting News that subscribers can expect in the next 2 days. It's their Spring Training Preview featuring the Phillies' new ace pitcher Roy Halladay on the cover. Check that out here.

Macho Row has a slide show tribute to today's birthday boy...Lenny Dykstra. Check that out by clicking this link.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice. The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Be sure to tune in on 97.3 ESPN's Weekend Sports Guide with Tyrone Johnson this afternoon around 1:15pm to hear me chatting about the Phillies! 97.3 is based in Atlantic City.

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
