Egg Harbor Twp., NJ Family Meets Phillies All-Star in Grocery Store
Egg Harbor Twp. residents Liz and Jason Salsbery had some free time with their boys, Jay and Dylan, off from school and the baseball season on pause. The couple decided to get away, so they took a trip down to one of their favorite spots to visit, Clearwater, Florida.
While there was no baseball to be played, the EHT residents did run into Phillies All-Star catcher, J.T. Realmuto at the Publix in Clearwater, FL at the start of their trip.
Salsbery told me Realmuto was very cool and talked to him for about 15 minutes in the grocery store.
The 30-year-old backstop hit .263 with 17 home runs, 73 RBI, and 13 stolen bases for the Phillies this season
Jason, a 1995 graduate of Mainland high school, was my catcher in high school and his wife Liz is an Ocean City graduate. The couple met while working on the Ocean City boardwalk at Wonderland pier, I was in their wedding party.
You never know who you're going to run into down in Clearwater, if you're thinking about going for Spring Training this year, here are some of my favorite spots.
