Not only was 2009 BlueClaws RHP and 2010 Clearwater RHP Justin De Fratus promoted from Reading to Clearwater today, but he’ll also make his national television debut.
De Fratus was among the Phillies minor leaguers featured in a show taped by the Food Network, Dinner Impossible, which airs tonight at 10 pm. From their website:
It’s game-on for Robert in Clearwater, Florida… home of the Philadelphia Phillies spring training camp. As Robert approaches the mound he is greeted by 1980 World Series Champion and current Phillies coaching staff member, Dickie Noles. Dickie explains that this is the only time of year that the minor league and major league players practice side by side. In honor of that, Robert has 7 hours to make a meal for 200 ballplayers using major league and minor league ingredients.
Should be fun! 10 pm tonight on the Food Network.
