On an episode of MLB Network’s Intentional Talk with Chris Rose and Kevin Millar, Dr. Mark Mikkelsen, who is currently the head of the COVID-19 unit at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, joined the show to talk about what it’s like when a patient fully recovers and is able to head home.

Mikkelsen, who is a lifelong Phillies fan, also reminisced on the 2008 World Series parade. Mikkelsen mentioned that his favorite position player on the team at that time was Chase Utley. Little did he know that Utley was lingering on the call and surprised Dr. Mikkelsen:
