More Honors For Phils Prospect Singleton

On Wednesday South Atlantic League president Eric Krupa announced the league's full season all star team that included four honorees from the defending league champion Lakewood BlueClaws. Those who made the team were manager Mark Parent, catcher Sebastian Valle, traded short stop Jonathan Villar and first baseman "The Boss" Jon Singleton, who was also anointed the league's Most Outstanding Prospect. Singleton is the first BlueClaw player to receive the honor.


The 18 year old Singleton was drafted in the 8th round of the 2009 amateur draft and has quickly risen in the ranks of Phillies minor leaguers, as a poll that surveyed a dozen minor league experts released this week by the Reading Eagle declared Singleton the #1 prospect in the organization.

In 100 games this season for Class A Lakewood, Singleton has posted a .297 batting average, slugged 14 homeruns and driven in 77 runs.

Lakewood has clinched a playoff berth and will return to the post-season to defend its SAL title next Wednesday.

I talked with Jon about all the recent accolades and the upcoming playoffs. Check out the media player below to listen to the full exclusive interview.

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

Phillies minor leaguer Burch to use health scare as fuel

A missed baseball season wasn't the only challenge facing righty pitcher Tyler Burch this summer.   With persistent symptoms that began prior to spring training it was ultimately discovered, after the 2020 season was shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, that the 22-year-old had developed an autoimmune disease.   As symptoms that included dry mouth and frequent trips to the bathroom worsened, Burch's situation left his doctor puzzled.  And even the physician that conducted his team physical examination at the outset of spring training jokingly referenced diabetes, but did not take the possibility seriously.    The physical impacts subsided somewhat during spring training, as being more active and adhering to the team diet helped alleviate what he was experiencing.
