Premiere 2011 Giveaway: Reading's Chooching Owl

It's not quite St. Patrick's Day yet, so I am assuming that most of you do not yet know what you may have planned for Tuesday night, August 2nd. Well, I am here to tell you what you SHOULD BE doing that. How about attending a Reading Phillies game at First Energy Stadium?

Reading will be the place to be in the region that night, as the R-Phils giveaway a Carlos Ruiz "Chooching Owl". The hybrid bird/world champion backstop will don the uniform of the Double A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies and be capable of hooting Carlos' nickname, Chooch.

Presented by FirstEnergy, the guaranteed highlight of the giveaway schedule will be provided to the first 3,000 adults in attendance that night. You can click here to order your tickets.

Ruiz was a member of the Reading Phillies roster in 2003 and 2004, when he combined to post a .278 batting average with 19 homers and 66 RBI in 153 games.

Other noteworthy promotions by the Reading Phils this year include April 14th, when the club will give away Ryan Howard garden gnomes. That same night, one lucky fan will receive a larger than life 550-pound Ryan Howard garden gnome to call his or her own. A Cole Hamels garden gnome will also be given away on June 20th. In addition, the R-Phils will host Darren Daulton for an appearance on June 1st, and "Mr. Belding" will appear on June 22nd.

Shout out to my pal Mike Meech for the heads up on the image above. We've known about this promotion for a while, but hadn't seen a concept image until today. ___________________________________________________________

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

Ryan Madson is acting questionable

I've seen similar types of "poking fun" entries on other Phillies blogs. When this picture came across my desk today, I figured, "Why not...?" Ryan Madson was out on the town (Manayunk) over the weekend and was photographed acting pretty with a purse slung over his shoulder and being chummy with a friend of mine.
