Prior to Thursday's Double-A Reading Fightins game at Trenton, home of the Yankees' affiliate the Thunder, I noticed a youngster among a group of about a few dozen children from a local school singing the national anthem. Among the crowd, there was one kid who wasn't quite interested in singing at all. He caught my attention while he was glancing backward toward the stadium's video board and not participating with his classmates, who were positioned with him on the field. After a few lines, I picked up my camera to capture video of the boy who seemed considerably impressed with his status in the moment. Have a look at that fairly cute video clip below.
Season's greetings to all of you! It's that time of the year to celebrate and enjoy the holiday season. Every year at Christmas time, I survey a group of Phillies prospects about what they get excited for during the holidays. This year, we focus on just one up and coming player, corner infielder DJ Stewart. The 22-year-old righty batter had a solid season in 2021. In 94 games combined with Class A Clearwater and Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, Stewart notched a .265 batting average with 14 home runs, 42 RBI and five stolen bases.

It's the final song of my favorite Christmas movie. -What's your favorit
