Ca. takes grounders on the Phillies half field adjacent to their spring training stadium today.  Orr will be leaving Clearwater on March 3, 2013 to join his Canadian teammates in Arizona prior to pool play for the World Baseball Classic.  Chase Utley also was taking infield.

another sport at the team’s Carpenter Complex.  According to some Revere says it uses his whole arm throwing the football.  Former major league pitching coach Tom House of the Texas Rangers used to do the same having pitchers playing catch with a football during spring training. House was in the bullpen on April 8th, 1974, an historic day at Atlanta’s Fulton County Stadium.  Al Downing served up Hank Aaron’s historic 715th home run which broke Babe Ruth’s Record. Tom House caught the ball.
