Today, the Phillies 2013 ball girls have been announced. There are nine new girls, including a set of twins from Wilmington, DE. There are eight ladies returning from last year. Along with glovework, the tryouts also included tests of interpersonal skills and baseball knowledge, (which is shockingly similar to our eharmony winnowing process). Last year’s picture is above. Saturday, the gals will be convening at CBP for their photo. We’ll keep you posted, but the point of all of this is this: Let’s just take a moment to give thanks to the baseball gods that we don’t live in one of those “ball-boy” cities or even worse, a “ball-old-man” town.
