Bonus Episode: Chloe’s Special Moment

Tuesday night brought about one of the most incredible moments we’ll likely see this year, so good that you could be excused if you thought it was scripted: 8-year-old Chloe Grimes being interviewed on Bally Sports Sun about her favorite player, Brett Phillips, and Phillips then blasting a huge home run to her joy and delight.

We talk with both Phillips and Bally Sports Sun’s Tricia Whitaker, who conducted the interview, and Doug Waechter, a long-time friend of the family, about the amazing moment they got to be a part of.
