On Thursday, Cole and Heidi Hamels held their annual Diamonds and Denim fundraiser, and Awesome Emma was there to ask all the ridiculous questions. Hamels, Chase Utley, Darin Ruf, John Mayberry Jr., Chris Bukowski from The Bachelorette(?) and others graciously answered her queries about baseball, corn and owls. But the most surreal part of the interview… comes at the 3:07 mark, when Ryne Sandberg, whom we now know had just learned of his promotion about six hours earlier on Thursday, danced around probing questions about his “bigger opportunity” while trying to hold back a smile from knowing that his dream of becoming a Major League manager had already come true.
So yeah, news of the Phillies’ coaching change was nearly broken by a 10-year-old correspondent from world’s foremost bolg about wanting to go to the zoo with Roy Halladay. Somewhere, David Murphy is contemplating a career change.
