Sad news for the Pirates as Phil is declared out for the season after dislocating and fracturing his finger in the game against the Raiders. For anyone that doesn’t remember the catch, Phil made a huge amount of ground to take a running catch and stop a certain home run. Unfortunately for Phil he didn’t quite get the whole of his glove to the ball but managed to catch the ball by using his right hand to keep the ball in. OUCH!
It’s a big loss for the Pirates but on the positive side Phil has cemented himself in Pirate history with both the catch of the season and keeping himself at the top of stats.
From everyone at the Pirates and Parrots we hope the operation goes well and wish you a speedy recovery.
