Today marks the first day of the Spring, as the Phillies play the Pirates in Bradenton. It also marks the debut of the Race For Second Base (trademark 2009, Phillies Nation), as candidates line up to possibly take Chase Utley’s spot for a few games in April.
Jason Donald goes first today, and the prospect will try and make a nice impression from the gate. Last Spring, Donald impressed many with a two-home run game against the Blue Jays in Dunedin.
According to the Inquirer piece, Donald might get some time at third base this Spring.
