Frosty Phillies Favorites: 2021 Edition w/ DJ Stewart

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. 

Recently, I talked with DJ to gain his feedback on all of his holiday favorites. Read ahead for that interview...

-What's your favorite Christmas movie?

My favorite is This Christmas.  My Mother and I would watch it together every Christmas, so it just stuck with me.

-What is your favorite Christmas song and which version is best?

This Christmas by Chris Brown.  It's the final song of my favorite Christmas movie.

-What's your favorite thing to eat at the holidays and who makes it?

My mother's banana pudding.  A perfect Christmas dessert.

-Do you have a standout gift from childhood that sticks out in your memory?

My older cousin each year would get me a doll as a joke and eventually it just became a tradition.

-What is your favorite tradition to enjoy with your family at the holidays?

Just seeing my family.  I am very family oriented, so just seeing them each year is my favorite tradition.  Merry Christmas.

Harry Kalas Phorever...

Legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas passed away today. Harry collapsed while preparing to call today's game against the Washington Nationals. So many phans will feel as though we've lost a member of our own families. I feel as though I've lost a part of myself, but Harry enhanced my love of the great sport we call baseball and I will always carry that love, and Harry, in my heart. I've stated on this page before that I consider Harry more of a Phillie than anyone who wears the uniform as an active member of the roster. Harry Kalas was a Phillie. Moreso, Harry Kalas was the Phillies. Please share your thoughts and memories of Harry in the comments section, or send them to PhoulBallz (at) verizon (dot) net.
