Threshers Promo Pics

This week the Ft. Myers Miracle (Twins affiliate) hosted a couple noteworthy promotions when they played against the Phillies' Class A Advanced club, the Clearwater Threshers.  Thanks to the Twitter feeds of a couple Threshers players, we got an inside look at some behind-the-scenes action.

On Wednesday, the Miracle held their annual tribute to the Negro Leagues, when they donned the uniforms of the Newark Eagles while Clearwater represented the Homestead Grays.   Starting pitcher Perci Garner posted the below image of himself, along with some teammates including Tyler Knigge, Jesse Biddle and Ryan Duke, sporting the Grays gear.



In addition, surging third base prospect Cody Asche took time prior to Thursday's "School is Out for Summer" promotion to pose for a photo with the most famous television school principal ever, "Mr. Belding" from Saved by the Bell, actor Dennis Haskins.



It's certainly fun to see young players enjoying their lives on the road.  The Threshers (24-12) are currently in 2nd place in the Florida State League's North division, 5 games behind 1st place Dunedin.

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...?"
