So There's No Rose Ceremony?
OK, not reality stars like Flavor Flav or Vern Troyer(and thank God for that). But MLB Productions has been in Clearwater for the past week, shooting the debut episode of The Pen, an inside look at the Phillies’ bullpen. It is MLB Network’s first original programming, and it is scheduled to debut June 1.
There will be six episodes through the all-star break.
“I think it’ll be pretty neat,” Clay Condrey said.
You’ll probably become a star, Clay.
“I ain’t no star,” he said.
The program is expected to give fans an inside look at how a bullpen operates (i.e. how individual relief pitchers work as a team). There also will be off-the-field footage to give fans a feel for what these guys are like.
