Plus, schoolwork seems to be picking up for me, while senioritis is starting to kick in. Know that I will write for the blog any chance I can get and will continue to make both blogs the best they can possibly be. Again, I am really sorry.

Burrell to retire as a Phillie

April 12, 2012
In 2008, Pat Burrell took his last at-bat as a Phillie. It was in the World Series, when game five finally resumed after the infamous rain delay.

Burrell hit a 400 foot double that was just inches away from being a home run, but regardless it drove in Geoff Jenkins, who was on second, and helped the Phillies capture their first World Series title in 28 years and the city of Philadelphia's first championship in 25.
