I approached Pat Gallen in July of 2009 when Tim Malcolm stepped down as our main scribe here at Phillies Nation. At the time, Pat was the Phillies reporter for the Philadelphia Examiner where I felt his skilled writing and superior analysis were being under utilized and not appreciated. Not only has Pat’s writing informed and entertained all of us since last summer, along with your support, he has grown to become a respected member of the Phillies media community. Pat Gallen is not just an invaluable member of the Phillies Nation family – he is also my friend.
Today, Pat was inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association along with Kevin McAlpin of 97.5 the Fanatic in Philadelphia.
On the behalf of everyone at PhilliesNation.com we are proud to feature the work of premier writers, such as Pat, that you have come to expect from us and ourselves.
