VIDEO: Catching up with Ian Thomas in Philadelphia
A year ago and five days, we caught up with New York Mets LHP Scott Rice when they visited Philadelphia for early season action. Once again, we journeyed to Citizen’s Bank Ballpark for the same reason- to chat with a former York Revolution left-handed reliever turned Major Leaguer, in his rookie season in the National League East.
This time around, it’s 2012 alum Ian Thomas, who we have written about a time or two in this space since the Atlanta Braves purchased his contract from the Revolution that season. As we continue to chronicle his rise to the Majors, he was nice enough to take some time out for this interview before the Braves took on the Phillies on April 14. Here’s a nugget that didn’t make it on-camera: The first Major League game Thomas ever attended was the first one he PLAYED in, when the Virginia Beach, VA native made his MLB debut in Milwaukee on March 31 of this year.
