Crosscutters Okay Following Bus Crash

Tuesday night, following a 7-2 win over the Brooklyn Cyclones, the Phillies' short-season Class A team, the Williamsport Crosscutters, was involved in a motor vehicle accident, when their bus collided with a sport utility vehicle, then crashed into a guard rail.

The chartered Susquehanna Trailways bus, carrying 52 passengers, was en route back to the team's hotel at the time of the accident.

News reports stated that two pitchers and the club's strength and conditioning coach were treated for injuries at a local hospital and released.

Pitcher Bryan Morgado spoke with WNEP, stating how lucky the team was to escape tragedy.

"We hit the railing and looked down and saw we were five feet from falling off the railing, so thank God everybody's good, everybody is safe, escaped from the window every body is fine," Morgado stated.

Just over 12 hours after the accident, the 'Cutters were back on the field in Brooklyn. The Cyclones prevailed by a score of 3-2, but the Williamsport loss is certainly understandable, considering the circumstances.

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. Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!
