Throughout the first half of the 2013 season, I conducted dozens of interviews with Phillies minor leaguers for a concept segment on Comcast's Phillies Nation TV. Those interviews were never used on the program. I've been chasing the powers that be to put the planned segments together as web content for the better part of six months, since the minor league season ended. While nearly all of that footage is likely to never be seen, I did come across a pair of digital files and put together this two-minute segment featuring Phillies third baseman Cody Asche.
The 23-year-old University of Nebraska product, Asche, was a 4th round draft pick by the Phils in 2011. Since then, Asche proved to be a rising star and made his major league debut with the Phillies last summer, posting a .235 average with five home runs and 22 RBI in 50 games in the bigs.
Check out the media player below to see this never-before-released interview with Cody, as he answers silly questions that didn't make the cut for television.
