Spring Training: Phillies announce their opening day pitcher.
Yesterday, the World Series Champs have announced who will be their opening day pitcher. Their opening day pitcher was a real no-brainer as they announce that their ace, 2008 NL Championship MVP and 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels. This will be the first time in his young career that he will be the first Phillie pitcher to be faced by an opposing team batters during the season.
Congratulations on getting the ball first, Cole. Now go out there and start mowing down Braves on Sunday night, April 5. Go Phils!!!!
