This year, The Hamels Foundation will donate over $50,000 in grants to three Philadelphia schools. These grants will provide new musical instruments for Shawmont, library renovations for FS Edmonds, and an art kiln plus supplies for Cook-Wissahickon! The Hamels Foundation believes that these investments will provide significant improvement to the quality of students’ lives.
“Through the generosity of Cole and Heidi Hamels, the future of Shawmont’s Instrumental Music Program is now secure! The timing of the grant is significant as the District’s financial deficits are so profound there was little hope of continuing next year. The funding has enabled the fulfillment of the promise that our Instrumental Music Program will be able to continue for all of our 600 students next year and beyond. WE are most grateful and appreciative of Cole and Heidi’s commitment to support Philadlephia’s children in ways that really make a difference in their lives.” – Principal Michael Graff, Shawmont Elementary School
“Thank you to The Hamels Foundation for making FS Edmonds’ dream for a new, renovated library, become a reality! You believe in our power to succeed!” – Principal Sharen Finzimer, FS Edmonds
“We are thrilled that The Hamels Foundation has selected Cook-Wissahickon School to receive a grant to purchase and install a new kiln in our art studio. Our school community has a strong love of the arts, and this new addition will allow our students to explore facets of expression and design that otherwise would not be available to them. We are truly blessed to receive this award, and thank The Hamels Foundation for their ongoing efforts to support the education of all students in Philadelphia.” – Principal Karen Thomas, Cook-Wissahickon School

BEST OF MAXIM
With Chase Utley on the disabled list and Ryan Howard on the precipice of injury with his hurting left knee, there has been an outcry from some fans for the Phillies to call up. To some, the Ruthian-type hero from last year who blasted 20 home runs in one month, and 51 between three leagues is the obvious choice for a team which so desperately needs an offensive boost. But to others...
Cole Hamels was charged with four earned runs allowed in a five-run seventh inning for the Nationals. Two struggling aces took the mound in a Sunday afternoon affair between two division foes. For six innings, the aces put on a show. There were strikeouts aplenty, weakly hit outs and the...

Consecutive two-out hits by Delmon Young and Domonic Brown plated a pair of runs in the eighth inning and keyed a 5-3 Phillies victory over the Nationals in D.C. on Saturday night. In what is beginning to seem like an every start occurrence, Jonathan Pettibone admirably battled through...
Kyle Kendrick was out of sync all night (PHOTO: AP)
Kyle Kendrick struggled for the second straight outing on Friday night, and the Phillies dropped the first of their three game series with the Nationals, 5-2. Kendrick and the defense had a very tough time in the fifth inning, giving up four runs in that frame alone. The inning started off with a Bryce Harper single, and the...

In today’s rubber match, the Phillies hope to take the series and get back to .500. Two aces take the mound; one has pitched very well this season, while...
Michael Martinez has been recalled from Lehigh Valley to take the roster spot of Chase Utley, who hits the DL with an oblique strain. Yes, that Michael Martinez.
No, we still will not see Darin Ruf, or even the young second baseman Cesar Hernandez, take the place of Utley.
I thought we had seen the last of Martinez last season, but apparently not. As Corey Seidman so eloquently...
It was a pitchers’ duel at its finest. Stephen Strasburg battled Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies through a six-inning staring contest, each waiting for the other to blink first.
Ultimately, it was the Washington Nationals’ hitters who clapped in Hamels’ face, as they propelled the Nats to a 6-1 victory after an explosive seventh inning.
It was a DIY...

When Michael Martinez was called up to replace Chase Utley on the Phillies roster Thursday, there was pure outrage from the entire Phillies phanbase. Twitter almost broke. Why the editor-in-chief of this very website was sent into a psychotic rage. I think the igniting of torches and the sharpening of...

Tyler Cloyd, a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan, always wanted to see a game at Fenway Park.
His ninth career major league start will come there Monday night when he takes the ball for the Philadelphia Phillies.
Boston won't have the luxury of turning to Clay Buchholz, who has been scratched for the opener of the first four games between these teams.

Stephen Strasburg won a duel with Cole Hamels, Bryce Harper aggravated a knee, and the Washington Nationals managed to score five runs in an inning for the first time this season.
Still, it is not enough for Davey Johnson to start shaving.
