Phillies principal owner John Middleton is the Everyman.

What made Jason Kelce the Everyman for the Eagles, Middleton is starting to emulate for his Phillies.

Kelce was a relatable guy, a guy you would often see around town, shaking hands.  You would see at the bar, having a drink with fans.  You would see in the crowd or at a tailgate party before his brothers games.

He was relatable.

While John Middleton might not been scene hanging out at Roberts Place in Margate this summer, he is becoming a guy that fans can relate with.

Last year after the Phillies Wild Card Round win over the Miami Marlins, Middleton stuck around after the playing field was empty and brought out balls of baseball, chucking them into the stands for fans who didn't want the party to end.

He has also been known to throw balls out to fans before games at Citizens Bank Park.

Now with a large portion of his fan base spending money to travel to see his team play in Clearwater, FL, Middleton is engaging with his fans again.

Like Kelce down in Sea Isle at the Ocean Drive, Middleton is behind the bar serving drinks to Phillies fans at Frenchy's Tiki Bar at BayCare Ballpark after the Phillies Grapefruit League game was completed.

Middleton was bartending as part of the Darren Daulton Foundation, as a "celebrity bartender".

Those roles are usually meant for former players, but Middleton is doing his part to connect with fans.

Just like Kelce.
