Chase Utley And Ryan Howard Are Hitting Bombs

10 Jul

Ryan Howard’s homers in the 8th inning of last night’s game was his 25th of the year in a season in which he’s struggled.  He currently leads the Major Leagues, tied with fellow Phillie Chase Utley.  Howard’s hit 5 just in July, while Utley’s homer output has slowed a bit as the season has gone on.  This isn’t unexpected because of the incredible pace he started on in April.  Howard will likely pass Chase by the end of the month, and never look back.  Still, both Mr. Howard and Mr. Utley are really swinging those bats! The entire Phillies club desperately relies on home runs for offense, which is a good thing because it’s much easier to run the bases while jogging.

    Please tell me if there is a way to email Chase or Jennifer. My maiden name is Utley. My grandfather was from the boothill of Missouri along with some other Utleys. I have been told that we are 6th cousins. I just want to see if this is true or even if we are related. My son Spencer Martin is a 14 year baseball player and is very much interested in meeting you. He keeps us with all of the baseball stats especially yours. We live in Collierville, TN. east of Memphis, TN. If whoever monitors this posting can forward this email or give me an email address so that I can possibly contact Chase or his wife to see if we are related. Thanks for any help that you may give us.
