A Unique Walk in the Park

by tepidparticipation

I wanted to share this footage of former Giants farmhand Tommy Joseph shot just after the trade deadline expired. Joseph was the catcher for the Giants’ AA Richmond Flying Squirrels, until he was traded to the Phillies as part of the Hunter Pence deal. It just so happened Richmond was hosting the Phillies AA affiliate, Reading. So Tommy simply loaded his gear, said his goodbyes, and began a strange walk, along with a team employee, to the other side of the stadium to meet his new teammates. This is a unique look at a unique part of the baseball business. Enjoy.
