10/24/22 : Minor League Notes

Lost in the euphoria of the big club becoming National League Champions are some recent successes of some Phillies minor leaguers in their own post season efforts.  The Under 23 World Baseball Cup Tournament just concluded in Taipei.  Team Japan emerged victorious in the twelve team competition.  Outfielder Chris Burke had a great tourney and was named to the All World Tournament team playing for Australia.  Chris posted a .400 OBP in 20 plate appearances and was outstanding defensively.  He tied for the tournament lead in home runs with two.

Chris is 21 years old and converted to the outfield this season after initially playing the catcher position.  He will play winter league baseball for Melbourne in the Australian Baseball League which begins in December.
