Shameless Plug Sundays
So we are going to start something new here at “Down the Line.” Every Sunday, we will shamelessly plug some of the cool things happening with the team that you may not be aware of or don’t know how to find so we will take you right there. It’s another way for us to let you know what is happening behind the scenes. If you have any questions about any of our “shameless plugs,” leave a comment and we will get back to you.
Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! One of our former ballgirls, Debbie, just became a mom a few weeks ago so we are wishing her a very special first Mother’s Day!
So here it goes:

2) Do you know an extraordinary scholar??? The Phillies have started the “Extraordinary Scholar of the Month” contest saluting high school sophomores and juniors who are making a difference in the community while maintaining 3.0 or higher GPA. For more info go to www.phillies.com/scholar.
