Odubel Herrera ‘Worth Price of Admission’ for Phillies

ESPN MLB writer David Schoenfield made a list of one player from every team worth the price of admission, naming centerfielder Odubel Herrera as that player for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Each player had one specific skill that made him worth watching, ranging from defensive prowess to ability to make pyramids of paper cups. For Herrera, Schoenfield named his ability to flip the bat as the skill that makes him worth seeing.

Odubel Herrera’s bat flips. Yes, bat flipping is a skill. Don’t argue about this. Just don’t do it on foul balls.

Herrera signed a five-year, $30.5 million extension this offseason after he earned his first All-Star selection last season, and the Phillies are betting on him performing more bat flipping moments.

The All-Star centerfielder was pretty productive with the bat last season, after a rookie 2015 season where he hit .297 with eight homers, 41 RBI and 64 runs scored, he finished the 2016 season hitting .286 with 15 homers, 47 RBI and 87 runs scored.

One former Phillie made the list, former outfielder Ender Inciarte, made the list for the Braves, was credited for his defense.

Also Millville high alum and American League MVP Mike Trout made the list for his autograph ability.

Mike Trout’s autograph signing ability. He’s pretty good at other things in baseball also.
