Darin Ruf Interview Excerpts

Reading Phillies first baseman Darin Ruf is ripping through Double-A Eastern League pitching this season.  In 31 games for the R-Phils, Ruf has posted a league leading .389 batting average with 5 HR and 20 RBI.

The righty-hitting Ruf, who had a breakout year with Class A Advanced Clearwater last year with 43 doubles, 17 HR, 82 RBI and a .308 batting average in 133 games, will turn 26 years old in late July.

The 20th round draft selection from 2009 took some time recently to answer questions for yours truly.  Click here to check out my recent feature on Darin and check out the media player below to hear interview excerpts in which he talks about his manager, Dusty Wathan, his own approach to the game, players that he looked up to in his younger days and more.

Harry Kalas Phorever...

Legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas passed away today. Harry collapsed while preparing to call today's game against the Washington Nationals. So many phans will feel as though we've lost a member of our own families. I feel as though I've lost a part of myself, but Harry enhanced my love of the great sport we call baseball and I will always carry that love, and Harry, in my heart. I've stated on this page before that I consider Harry more of a Phillie than anyone who wears the uniform as an active member of the roster. Harry Kalas was a Phillie. Moreso, Harry Kalas was the Phillies. Please share your thoughts and memories of Harry in the comments section, or send them to PhoulBallz (at) verizon (dot) net.
