VIDEO: Catching up with Scott Rice in Philadelphia
Darrell called in a favor to his buddies on the Phillies broadcast teams and scored us a couple of press passes to Tuesday’s Mets-Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park. The starting pitching match-up was Dillon Gee vs. Cliff Lee, that’s funny. But I digress…
The real reason we went was to catch up with Scott Rice in person, after days – and dating back to last season – months of blogging about him. There he was sitting in the far corner of the visiting clubhouse. A week into his first Major League season, Rice still looks and sounds relieved to finally be in the bigs after so many close calls through his 14-season minor league journey, including the first half of 2011 in York.
Here is DH’s interview with Rice. Enjoy!
