The event, which raises money for Baseballtown Charities, was filled with fans eager to hear about their beloved Phillies. And, thanks to distinguished guests such as Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel, Hall-of-Famer Ryne Sandberg, Phillies Assistant GM Benny Looper, Phillies Assistant GM Scott Proefrock, TV voice Tom McCarthy, and 40-man roster member Matt Rizzotti, fans were able to leave with a great hope for the 2011 season.

As for media, well they flocked to the event as well. There were many stories to be told.

Check out some of the great coverage from last night’s event! Enjoy!

It pains me that the Cubs did not hire Ryno to be their manager. With that said, I will be rooting for him this year and I know he will do well.
