Not only did the Phillies get a highly coveted right-handed bat to help balance out their lineup, they also got a classy guy who plays the game the right way who also happens to be quite active on Twitter — a first for a Phillies star*.
After he finished out tonight’s game in Milwaukee he tweeted out some classy words, thanking the people of Houston (see below), and told Philadelphia he’d see them tomorrow. Exclamation point!
As of this posting, Pence has 34,300 or so followers. You can follow him here.
Get to changing that Twitter background STAT.
*to be fair, Jimmy Rollins and Cole Hamels (foundation) are relatively active on Twitter.
