D’Andre Swift and Terrell Edmunds are the Newest Phillies Fans
The Philadelphia Phillies have been on an absolute roll at home the post-season. The Fightin’ Phils are 6-0 at home this post season and have outscored their opponents 39-8. And the crowd has been one of the most electric baseball fan bases that I have ever seen. And Philadelphia Eagles players D’Andre Swift and Terrell Edmunds are the newest Phillies fans after attending Game 2 of the NLCS.
The video is fantastic and the Eagles players say its the first baseball game they’ve been to. I don’t want to rain on their new found love for America’s Past Time, but that is not a normal baseball atmosphere. If they are looking for a real baseball experience they need to hit Citizens Bank Park on a random Thursday afternoon in July for a game against the Pirates. That’s what baseball has become. Here’s the video:
That is gold right there. If I were in charge of marketing for Major League Baseball I would be sure to share this video on every platform accessible. I give baseball a lot of flack. I think the league doesn’t know what they’re doing most of the time. But they have caught lightning in a bottle with the Philadelphia Phillies. The team is fun to watch, the fans are electric, and they’ve created a buzz in the sport. I think it’s great that D’Andre Swift and Terrell Edmunds are the newest Phillies fans. Philadelphia is giving me Boston sports vibes from the mid 2000’s. They’re championship contenders in damn near every single sport. And the fans are some of the most passionate in the world.
Good for the Phillies and good for Major League Baseball.
