Introducing our 2011 Rookie Ballgirls

My apologies…you’ve seen their pics from our photo shoot and have probably seen their names multiple times, but we’ve yet to officially introduce you to our Rookies for 2011! We took a few top fan questions (and some questions we just think are fun) and polled the new girls. Of course, the one thing we all have in common is our love for the Phillies and the great game of baseball, but besides that, the Rookies have some interesting stories I’ll let them tell you about…

Favorite Phillies memory: Hopefully, yet to come.  But so far…I think that I smiled for a week straight after the Phillies won the World Series in 2008.  It doesn’t get much better than that. Going to the parade and celebrating with all of the other loyal fans was one of the best days that I can remember!

Favorite Phillies memory: My favorite Phillies moment is when they won the World Series in 2008. I was in college at Montlciar State watching the game in my apartment with my softball teammates who are all Mets or Yankee fans. When we won I was so excited that I screamed and ran around my apartment! I knew I had to go to the parade. On parade day we were suppose to go with two of my friends and my parents. When we arrived at the PATCO station to catch the train there was a huge line for tickets and we knew we’d never make it in time. My Dad took one for the team and decided to drive us over the Ben Franklin and into Philly to drop off my Mom, myself and my friends. He went home to watch the parade on tv since there wasn’t any parking and said to call him and he would pick us back up. We saw the whole parade and had a blast with all the Phillies Phans! After the parade, we decided it would be fun to walk over the bridge and have my dad pick us up on the Jersey side. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day!
