Larry Shenk’s Phillies Minor League Report: 7/9/19


Larry Shenk is the longtime Philadelphia Phillies official historian, and brought his Minor League Report and other historic pieces to Phillies Nation beginning in 2019.

Phillies Nation is honored to have Larry Shenk among the ranks of our regular contributors.

“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 shares with readers here at Phillies Nation, his “Minor League Report” pieces now also run with us all during the season as well.
