Few players are anymore Philadelphia than Doug Glanville, who grew up in New Jersey and played his college ball at the University of Pennsylvania. After starting his career with the Chicago Cubs Glanville was traded for fan favorite Mickey Morandini in 1997 two days before Christmas.
Glanville went on to play part of six of his nine seasons in Philadelphia, collecting nearly 1,000 hits and 143 stolen bases in red pinstripes.
Following his playing career, Glanville joined ESPN as a studio and in-game color analyst. Despite his success at the World Wide Leader Glanville was given his walking papers as part of company-wide layoffs.
Combine Glanville’s familiarity with the city of Philadelphia and his broadcast experience he’s one of, if not the favorite to join Franzke in the booth.
