CLEARWATER, FLA.–Nine year old Matt Manuel got a bit of a thrill on Saturday February 16, 2013 as he took batting practice off his grandfather Charlie Manuel manager of the Philadelphia Phillies.  For his age the young man showed really good power to all fields especially left and left center and really roughed up the elder Manuel.
