Phanatic Honored; Romero Update

The Phillie Phanatic will be everywhere in Philly now. 20 different Phillie Phanatic statues will be scattered around Philadelphia as a tourist attraction.

“Fans who already love the Phillie Phanatic will see him in a brand new way,” said Frank Luzi, the museum’s public relations director. “There’s something different to each one.”

Some of the places the statue will be on display is the National Constitution Center and the African American Museum. The statues will be on display at the Please Touch Museum before being put at different locations throughout the summer. At then end of the summer, the statues will be auctioned off for various charities.


J.C. Romero is heading towards a full return to the Phillies as well. He pitched in his first minor league intrasquad game, going an inning and facing four batters. He faced Tyson Gillies, Freddy Galvis, Domonic Brown and Zak Farkes on just 13 pitches, throwing 10 strikes. Romero could throw again as early as Wednesday.

“Today was a big step for me,” Romero said in the clubhouse at Bright House Field. “I was very pleased with the outcome today. The good thing is that I was throwing a lot of strikes. My arm speed was outstanding.”
