For this week's edition of The Comcast Network's Phillies Nation TV, I produced a video package that features shortstop prospect J.P. Crawford. The 19-year-old was selected by the Phillies with the 16th overall pick in last year's draft. Since then, the talented lefty hitter has performed very well in the minors and appears ready to move upward in the developmental ranks at a fast pace.
This month, the gentlemen of 20/20 Visual Media and I spent some time with J.P. as well as his manager with Class A Lakewood, Greg Legg, and we put together the piece in the media player below. It's the first of many to come. Enjoy the segment.
To view the full episode which features details on Cole Hamels and Ryan Howard as well as a segment with former Phils hurler Tommy Greene, check out the media player below.
