An Eagle Bats
The Phillies were visited by Clearwater-native and Philadelphia Eagle Riley Cooper today. He took batting practice. The interesting thing here is that he was drafted by the Phillies out of high school, but went to college at the University of Florida. He was then drafted again by the Rangers while in college where he played both sports. He says he made the right decision by playing football, but he hasn’t really cracked the Eagles lineup much until last year, and even then it wasn’t a lot. You can read about it here.
