Audio, Foundation, PN Interview, Posts


Phillies All-Star pitcher Cole Hamels talked with me today at Philly Financial Day about a number of topics, including his cutter, the fans, and sticking around in Philadelphia for his whole career.

Hamels, along with Shane Victorino, Chase Utley, and Jimmy Rollins, all took part in the day for their respective charities. Philly Financial Day was put together to benefit each foundation – a portion of the proceeds of each transaction from Boenner & Scattergood, Janney Montgomery Scott, and NASDAQ will be used for charitable purposes.

On the eve of a huge series against the Braves, the men were out for a great cause. Listen in, Nation!

    Cole is and has always been very honest. I was impressed that he appreciated the fans here even though they have given him a hard time and that he would like to finish his career here. I don’t think it will happen but it was refreshing to hear him say that. I think he truly “gets” the fans in Philadelphia contrary to popular opinion. As expected, he said each of the pitchers feed off each other and help each other. Awesome to see all 3 in the ASG.

    He seems like a nice, gracious and down to earth person. I don’t see what’s not to like about this great pitcher and person but I am sure there will plenty of comments to the contrary.

    I loved Cole’s answer of Chooch. The pitchers absolutely love that guy and it goes to show you how much he means.

    Nice job… once you got past all of the promotional items, he settled in and gave you some nice genuine answers. He really doesn’t seem comfortable giving the canned answers… he’s not a great interview… but you did a great job and I imagine that you’re on cloud nine after something like that.

      Thanks Chuck. After a while you get used to it – which kinda sucks because 5 years ago I would have been. But being in the clubhouse everyday, you always see these guys. I still havent lost being a fan of the sport or of what these guys do, which is good.
