As most Phillies fans prepare themselves for the possibility of the departure of one of the most beloved players in team history, Major League Baseball has made it a little bit harder to say goodbye to Chase Utley.
On their Youtube page, the powers-that-be posted this incredible video of a very, very young Chase Utley playing in the 2001 Futures Game in Seattle’s Petco Park. Have a gander.
First, look at that swing. It is EXACTLY the same now as it was back then.
Second, look at how TINY he looks. And LOOK at that batting helmet. He reminds me of someone else…
Just thought it might be fun taking a trip down memory lane.
You may now go back to your work day.
