I'm Frank Klose and I cover the Phillies for 97.3 ESPN. During the baseball season you can hear me every Tuesday at 2:30 pm on 'The Sports Bash with Mike Gill'. Aside from 97.3 ESPN, I run the Philadelphia sports website SportsTalkPhilly.com. When not writing about sports, I teach courses at local colleges and universities.
