FROM A FLYING SQUIRREL TO A PHILLIEPosted: August 1, 2012 | |
This one was shared on Twitter by James, formerly of Phuture Phillies.
As part of the Hunter Pence deal, the Phillies nabbed three guys from the Giants – Nate Schierholtz, Seth Rosin, and finally, Tommy Joseph, who was to face the Reading Phillies as a member of the Richmond Flying Squirrels.
With the trade, and the promotion of Sebastian Valle to AAA Lehigh Valley, Joseph became the new starting catcher in AA, and here he is moving his stuff from the home clubhouse to the visitor’s. The trip looks a little bittersweet.
