Auction! Item from favorite team to win World Series! Baseball signed by all-time best pitchers in baseball, the Phillies’ Four Aces! Get in it to win it!

We interrupt this broadcast about Minor League Baseball in Phoenixville to talk a little bit about an exciting development for the Phillies this year.  In March, the New York Times ran a very detailed piece about a collection of starting pitchers  called the Four Aces, which the author says may be the “best-ever four-man rotation in baseball”:

“No team in baseball today has a greater number of successful deceptive pitchers than the Philadelphia Phillies. They have brought together four of the best starting pitchers in the game: Roy (Doc) Halladay, a 33-year-old two–time Cy Young Award winner; Cliff Lee, 32, and also a Cy Young winner; Roy Oswalt, 33, with 150 career wins; and the 27-year-old Cole Hamels, a World Series hero three years ago. Before they have even thrown one pitch for the same team, they are being hailed as the best four-man rotation in baseball, maybe the best ever. They are being compared with the great staffs in baseball history: the New York Yankees in the 1930s; the Cleveland Indians in 1954; the Orioles with their four 20-game winners in 1971; and the Atlanta Braves in the 1990s. As soon as Lee rejoined the team last December, the Phillies immediately became everyone’s favorite to win this year’s World Series. And necessity may push those expectations even higher now that the Phillies are dealing with injuries, most worryingly to their star second baseman and No. 3 hitter, Chase Utley, and must rely even more on their pitching.”

Here is your chance to own a ball signed by these four pitchers, pitching for everyone’s favorite team to win the world World Series this season! You can also support the Frankford Friend’s School’s new building in Philadelphia, PA!

Auction – Autographed 2011 Phillies Baseball signed by Four Aces! Benefits Frankford Friends’ School

From the auction’s writeup:

“Every Phillies fan knows that the Phillies’ 2011 pitching lineup of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels, also known as ‘the Four Aces,’ is one of the strongest in the history of the sport!  Fewer fans know that Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro, Jr., attended Frankford Friends School in NE Philly, or that his mom, Senora Amaro-Perez, still teaches Spanish there!  All proceeds from the sale of the baseball will go to help the school build a new Middle School Building.  Comes with an original letter on Phillies letterhead signed by Ruben Amaro, Jr., attesting to its authenticity.”

Pitch In for Baseball

Pitch In for Baseball is a worldwide non-profit organization that accepts donations of new and gently-used youth baseball equipment, as well as monetary donations. As you will see in the video entitled “From Philippines to Philly” (click on the “Where We Help” baseball bat on the left), many cities have been helped already. Equipment can be shipped, and there are instructions for doing that, but it can also be dropped off at their warehouse in Harleysville, PA – right down the street from Phoenixville! Thanks for donating to this worthy group.
