Lakewood's Bill Rice Interview Excerpts

Recently, PhoulBallz.com featured a piece on New Jersey resident Bill Rice, who attended an open Phillies tryout in Lakewood in 2010 and was signed to a professional contract by the team he grew up rooting for.

The 5-foot-11-inch 185-pound Rice performed well this season with the Gulf Coast League Phillies (.306 batting average) and earned a promotion, up two levels, to the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. Through 24 games with the two-time defending South Atlantic League champions, Rice has posted an impressive .324 average with 3 doubles, 2 triples, 1 homerun and 14 runs scored.

The lefty hitting Rice was a star player at Washington Township High School and later became a standout contributor at Gloucester County College prior to transferring to the University of South Carolina-Aiken.

These days, the 22-year-old outfielder is living his dream. Check out the media player below to hear excerpts from my exclusive interview with Bill.
