Larry Shenk’s Phillies Minor League Report: 4/5/19



Phillies Nation was honored to have Larry Shenk join the ranks of our regular contributors during this past off-season.

“The Baron” is the former Philadelphia Phillies head of community relations, a role in which he served the organization for more than four decades. Larry is also a 2018 inductee to the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame.

In addition to the Phillies alumni and history work which Larry has been sharing with readers here at Phillies Nation, his “Minor League Report” pieces will now also run with us all during the season as well.
