Meet the 2010 Ballgirls…Part 1
Get to know your 2010 Phillies Ballgirls!
Since we will get to meet so many Phillies fans during games and appearances, we thought we’d give you all a head start at getting to know us! There are 11 new girls and 6 returning veterans for the 2010 season. We asked each ballgirl basic background questions and 5 “icebreaker” questions. This week we will hear from 2 veterans, McKenzie and Amanda and 3 rookies, Becca, Kami and Jess!

Three things you’d take on a desert island: 1) A beach chair (to sit in for a little and enjoy the view) ; 2) A plane (to leave after a few hours) ; 3) A capable pilot (to fly me out of there!), because I wouldn’t last more than 4 hours on a desert island.
