Phillies 1st Round Pick Jesse Biddle on 97.3 ESPN FM

On Monday, the Phillies selected Jesse Biddle, a 6-foot-5 righty out of Germantown Friends in Philadelphia with their #1 selection (27th overall). Yesterday, Biddle was a guest of The Sports Bash with Mike Gill on 97.3 ESPN FM in South Jersey. He talked about being drafted by his hometown team, calling it “storybook ending.”

Biddle says he knew in his mind he always had the talent to be a first round choice, however, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that it actually dawned on him that it may happen. The young pitcher said he knows that the Phillies have a plan for him, and it may take some time for him to get to the big leagues, but he’s hoping it’s within three years.

Honestly, this kid is a very good interview for being a teenager.

    Sounds like a real nice kid with his head on straight. Hope my son has this composure as a high schooler.

    I heard him being interviewed on 97.5 yesterday and was amazed as well. He sounds like the consummate professional. He said he was going to take slot money to get the signing out of the way so he can get his career going. I also like the fact that he wants to get to the majors as soon as he can, who wouldn’t, but he trusts how the Phillies develop their players and he is on board with that. I’m really hoping he does well for this team.
