Recently, Phillies Nation TV headed out to the Class A South Atlantic League All-Star events in Lakewood, NJ to attend the Celebrity Hitting Challenge that was hosted at FirstEnergy Park by the BlueClaws. The "Clawstar Spectacular", as it was called, featured the likes of former players Matt Stairs and Dwight Gooden along with comedian Artie Lange, who were all featured in interviews on a recent edition of our program.
All the footage we collect can't always make the final edit of the show, so there are often clips or interviews we don't use. Among the material that ended up on the cutting room floor from the Celebrity Hitting Challenge was a one-on-one interview with former Phillies All-Star second baseman Mickey Morandini. In the interview, Mickey, who is now the manager for the BlueClaws, discussed the event, the reactions he gets from fans, looking forward to the 1993 Phillies reunion coming up next month and plenty more.
Check out the media player below for that interview and don't forget to watch new episodes of Phillies Nation TV each Tuesday at 6 PM on The Comcast Network with replays running throughout the week on TCN and Comcast SportsNet.
