Philadelphia Phillies pitcher, Cole Hamels is no stranger to sporting unique appearances. During a recent exhibition game, Cole Hamels was using the team’s hot-dog cannon and launching dogs into the crowd. If that wasn’t cool enough, Hamels was pictured wearing this awesome new mustache!

Cliff Lee: The team hopes the lefty will bounce back from a disappointing 2012 campaign and become a dominant anchor in the rotation once...

Chase Utley hit his 200th career home run and was a double shy of baseball's first Opening Day cycle since 1950, but his impressive 2013 debut was not enough to get the Phillies started on the right foot in Atlanta. Cole Hamels allowed three home runs in a 7-5 Opening Day loss to the Braves.
Freddie Freeman drove in three runs with three hits, including the first of three Atlanta home runs Monday night, and the Braves beat Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5 on opening day.
Dan Uggla and Justin Upton, making his Braves debut, also homered for Atlanta, which led National League teams with 49 in spring training.
