Chase Utley was back in town yesterday to complete the local media circuit. The often seen-not-heard Second Baseman, was unusually talkative as he navigated T.V., radio and print interviews drumming up interest in his charity and his team's upcoming campaign.
The Phillies woes at the box office have been whispered about since play ended last October - with one Phillies employee I spoke to recently even speculating season ticket sales were down as much as 20% from 2013. As a result of this slump, six-game partial plans (including Opening Day) went on sale earlier than normal. And, Monday, three-game packs, usually reserved for March were opened for pre-sale.
One of the packages made available this week is the "Bobble Head Pack" - which will give fans the opportunity to purchase tickets to one or both scheduled figurine handouts: Chase Utley on 6/10, and a still TBD player on 8/19. Catching my eye was the low-resolution, partial picture of the Utley figurine.
To my knowledge, this is the first time a photo of the bobble has been published. It looks like he is in a fielding pose, wearing the road, gray uniform. If anyone has a full image - let me know!
