Recently, I spoke with Phillies pitching prospect Ben Brown about his recovery from Tommy John surgery, how he's using the down time during the pandemic hiatus and more. When the 20-year-old right-hander spared some time to answer the serious questions, he was also gracious enough to offer his thoughts on the silly-ass ones. Read ahead for a sample of my bonus interview with Ben.
-Who is your coolest Phillies teammate and why?
Bruce Wang for sure. No explanation needed for that stud.
-I have an "Uncle Chubby" and my son calls his grandmother "Gaga". Do you have any unique names within your family?
We call my Uncle Scott "Bigs." He is a big, awesome guy. Very tall.
