You’re invited to the first annual Wiffadelphia wiffleball tournament to benefit Philabundance.
On Saturday, March 9 starting at 6pm, we’ll be hosting a huge party at Big League Dreams – an indoor wiffleball facility in Medford, NJ. We are raising money to help Philabundance provide meals for families in the Delaware Valley. There will be lots of activities and different ways you can participate, but the main event will be an 8-team wiffleball tournament and home run derby. Each team will consist of a maximum of 8 players (all 8 will bat, but only 5 play the field at a time) and each team is guaranteed to play in three games. You can register as a whole team or we can assign you and some friends to a team ($25/person). If you don’t want to play wiffleball, you can get a guest ticket ($15/person) and have fun in lots of other ways:
T-shirts for everyone

Darin Ruf could get the opportunity of a lifetime with the Philadelphia Phillies, which is one benefit in today’s baseball. Do you think he’ll make the cut, or be the right-handed solution behind Ryan Howard?

Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
continues to target a veteran corner outfielder, according to Todd Zolecki of
"We've had several talks with free agents, although
they're limited now," Amaro said Friday. "We've also talked about
some possible trades. We're staying active as far as that is concerned. We'...
Ah, 1989: the U.S. inaugurated a new president, Thomas and Friends begins to air on PBS, and the top played song was “Look Away” by Chicago. Around the world, Hirohito passed away, Poland had free elections, the Berlin Wall fell, and the world made Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” the top played song across the globe. It was a pretty big year around the world: holes were being...
As the offseason winds down and the Phillies inch closer to Spring Training, the Phillies' outfield remains a pointed debate. Despite many reports that the Phillies are looking to adds veteran outfielder, Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is singing a different tune today. Quoted in a Philly.com blog post...

When Nelson Prada was named manager of the Williamsport Crosscutters on Friday, I surmised that perhaps the Phillies brought Prada on board in hopes of enhancing the development of international players, perhaps specifically so the development of Prada’s native Venezuela. The Phillies enter...
An untimely injury in the last game of 2011 put a sudden halt to Ryan Howard‘s run as a borderline elite fantasy first baseman, but there’s still a little gas left in the tank for this former 40-homer, 140-RBI threat. In just 71 games and 292 plate appearances last year, Howard clubbed 14 homers and 56 RBI. Double those numbers and you have the kind of production Howard would...
The Philadelphia Phillies have continued to be tied to outfielders and other potential roster upgrades, but yesterday general manager
Ruben Amaro Jr. said that the team is likely “going with what we’ve got,”
reports Matt Gelb of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The GM did not eliminate the possibility of a veteran
addition for the outfield, but admitted within his current...
Look at this man's beard/hair combo. Seriously...behold!Hints- this former Phillie shares his last name in pronunciation only with two other former Phillies players (spelled differently). The Phils acquired him for the price of a trip on a "cruise".Go for the glory and name that Phillie...
Is Brown, Ruf, and Revere enough?
On Philly.com, Matt Gelb spoke with Ruben Amaro about the direction of the Phillies outfield heading into the 2013 season. Amaro was frank in saying they will likely go with what they currently have due to the monetary restraints in front of them.
“We’re likely going with what we’ve got,” Ruben Amaro Jr. said.
“There’s some risk in...
Craig Kimbrel will be the first reliever taken in all fantasy leagues this year. Jonathan Papelbon will probably be the second.
And we have him ranked 171st overall! WTF! Unfortunately, relief pitchers lose a ton of value because they only pitch about one-half to one-third the innings of starting pitchers, and unless they have sparkling ERAs that resemble 1-point-something or WHIPs...
