Support PhoulBallz & Its Mascot

For those of you that regularly check out this site and enjoy the exclusive minor league focused content that it serves up, I want to thank you. PhoulBallz.com began as a hobby for me and has developed into a very enjoyable side gig that comes with some nice perks, but doesn't quite fatten the wallet in a considerable fashion.

That leads me to letting you all know of a personal situation that has already impacted my family financially and could affect my ability to continue on with this site.


This week, my dog Rocky underwent an expensive surgery to remove a mass in his abdomen as well as his spleen. While doctors believe Rocky has cancer, the Independence Day holiday has delayed a full and accurate diagnosis of the issue that has potentially affected his liver. As recently as Sunday, Rocky had been playing fetch and was acting normally, but on Monday he had great difficulty walking and it became clear something was wrong. Doctors quickly confirmed he had internal bleeding and emergency surgery was required. Rocky will continue to rack up pricey medical bills as he battles the ailments that have stricken him in such a sudden fashion.

Rocky is a dynamic boy that is fun, friendly and loving. If you've ever enjoyed this site, or simply feel generous, and can afford to contribute toward Rocky's growing medical bills, your assistance would be greatly appreciated by my sweet boy and his family.

Again, thank you all for your support of PhoulBallz.com in the past, present and in the future. You can help Rocky via PayPal by clicking the button below.






**Update and thanks. Rocky has passed away. The old boy returned home following his surgery and his time in ICU, but his life did not last as long as we had hoped. We greatly appreciate any and all support offered by many of you, whether it was via donation, prayers, retweet or otherwise. Rocky was a big part of my family for over a decade and he will be missed tremendously.**

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Former Phils prospect Cozens stops looters in AZ

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
