Recently, Phillies Nation TV headed out to the Class A South Atlantic League All-Star events in Lakewood, NJ to attend the Celebrity Hitting Challenge that was hosted at FirstEnergy Park by the BlueClaws. The “Clawstar Spectacular”, as it was called, featured the likes of former players Matt Stairs and Dwight Gooden along with comedian Artie Lange, who were all featured in interviews on a recent edition of our program.
All the footage we collect can’t always make the final edit of the show, so there are often clips or interviews we don’t use. Among the material that ended up on the cutting room floor from the Celebrity Hitting Challenge was a one-on-one interview with former Phillies All-Star second baseman Mickey Morandini. In the interview, Mickey, who is now the manager for the BlueClaws, discussed the event, the reactions he gets from fans, looking forward to the 1993 Phillies reunion coming up next month and plenty more.
Check out the media player below for that interview and don’t forget to watch new episodes of Phillies Nation TV each Tuesday at 6 PM on The Comcast Network with replays running throughout the week on TCN and Comcast SportsNet.

Whoa! This episode is overflowing with fun and informative features. First, Corey welcomes his brother Eric to the show for a lesson on the upcoming trade deadline.

Johnny Goodtimes returns for another installment of his hilariously competitive Parking Lot Challenge. This week features teams from Holy Ghost Prep in Bensalem, Gloucester Catholic Softball and Julie’s Bat Mitzvah party. See who can park a wiffleball onto I-95.

Last but certainly not least, Jay Floyd is in Lakewood for the SAL All-Star Celebrity Hitting Challenge. Claw Star Spectacular, as it’s known, featured the likes of Doc Gooden, Matt Stairs, Artie Lang, Mitch Williams and Mickey Morandini. Watch as he interviews these baseball and comedic legends.

Pat and Corey are back this week with their unique perspective on Phillies baseball. They make a case for Dom Brown starting the All-Star game, preview the Phillies current road trip (and why now is the time to bury the Nationals), plus figure out what’s going on with Mike Adams. Ryann relays some of the best fan questions of the week, like when is the right time to promote Darin Ruf and should the Phils trade Cliff Lee (gasp!)?
Corey sits down with Sean Forman, founder and president of the “cathedral of baseball statistics” Baseball-Reference.com. They discuss the origins of the web site, the usefulness of the Play Index tool and how Chase Utley is an underrated player.
Then Ian is shown the ropes – both literally and figuratively – by pro wrestler and South Philly native, The Blue Meanie.

Righty reliever Colby Shreve entered his 2013 campaign with a 19-14 record, six saves and a 3.54 ERA along with a 7.25 K/9 mark and a 3.24 BB/9 mark in 110 games at three levels, but hasn’t been as sharp this season. In 15 games (14 with Class A Advanced Clearwater and one with Double-A Reading), the Las Vegas native has a 0-2 record, a 4.44 ERA and has struck out 19 and walked 16 in 26 1/3 innings pitched.
The 6-foot-5 210-pounder was sidelined with an elbow injury and required Tommy John surgery when he was selected in the 6th round of the 2008 draft by the Phils and did not make his pro debut until 2010.
Shreve, 25, altered his arm angle a bit last year and improved the velocity of his fastball which was clocked at 95 MPH during his time with Reading in 2012.
Last month, I talked with Colby, during his most recent stint with Reading, for Phillies Nation TV. He spoke about working to climb the developmental ladder, getting drafted by the Phillies and his impression of the rebranding in Reading. This segment went unused on the TV program, but I definitely wanted to bring it to the viewers anyway.
Check out the interview in the media player below and be sure to tune into PNTV every Tuesday at 6 PM on The Comcast Network. The program also replays throughout the week on TCN and Comcast Sportsnet, so check your listings.

All I can say is I hope he’s not hurt to the point of surgery. My expectations of the team as a whole this past off season hasn’t changed. They are low and are sinking even faster. To me from what I can tell we […]
That is a definite pass! As many have already stated, he’s not worth the money ,years or the pick. If he was any good he’s be signed already. Is it his agents fault? Who knows. But my guess is it’s his agent plus […]
