Phillies Bringing Every Spring Game to Phans

If you haven't noticed, the Phillies are offering their fans a steady stream of access to all Grapefruit League contests this spring. With their product in high demand by fans throughout the region and beyond, the Phillies have committed to bring each spring training game to the public in some fashion.

Unlike any Grapefruit League season before, the Phillies are utilizing their ability to relay game coverage in an advertisement-free fashion, live on Phillies.com. In the absence of televised games and terrestrial radio transmissions, the Phillies broadcast team will alternate duties and bring live play by play to internet users everywhere. The 2011 Grapefruit League season marks the the very first time that the club has made every single spring contest available to phans, according to Rob Brooks, the Phillies manager of broadcasting.

According to Brooks, the organization fell one date short in 2009, when the Phillies broadcasters covered all but one game on its spring schedule in some manner.

The availability of the full spring schedule speaks volumes to the following that the Phillies have developed in recent years. The success, both on the field and financially, that the Phillies have enjoyed since 2007 is unlike any other stretch in the organization's history, as they've won four consecutive division titles, clinched two National League pennants and locked down their second world championship. The popularity of baseball in Philadelphia has grown because of those accomplishments.

Below is the remaining spring schedule and how the Philadelphia faithful can catch their favorite baseball team on a daily basis, including today's televised match up with the Yankees.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

Prospect Nation 2014: #4 2B/OF Cesar Hernandez

Cesar Hernandez, image- Jay Floyd Signed by the Phillies as an amateur free agent at the age of 16 in 2006, Cesar Hernandez swiftly proved himself as a capable prospect that had quite a future in baseball. Last year, the young Venezuelan was honored as a Triple-A All-Star and made his big league debut. This year, he'll be doing everything in his power to earn another chance to compete at the top level of the sport. Hernandez, a switch-hitter, made his professional debut with the Phillies' Venezuelan Summer League team in 2007. In two seasons there, he tallied a .296 batting average with three home runs and 45 RBI in 114 games. He followed that effort with a campaign in which he batted .267 with five doubles and a triple in 41 games for the rookie level Gulf Coast League Phillies in 2009. The following season, with the short-season Class A Williamsport Crosscutters, Hernandez was voted as the Most Valuable Player of the club by his teammates and was a New York-Penn Leag
