What Andy Phillips is up to

Wondering how Andy Phillips is keeping busy in the off-season? Aside from taking care of his new baby, I mean. (I think I heard it was a girl, but don't quote me on that.) He's doing some charity events for Baseball Country, which seems to be a combination baseball and bible camp. Or maybe that's just how they do baseball camp in Alabama.

I wonder if Andy helped them get the Jeter and A-Rod autographed jerseys.

Andy also has his own charity golf tournament:

They had a little girl - Isaiah Jewel. It was on the Reds website back in September.

Thanks for the news.

Boy, that's kind of a strange name for a girl. Isaiah is a man's name.

That poor girl is in for a lifetime of being addressed as "Mr. Phillips." Unless she goes by her middle name...

Isaiah is a Biblical name...and I think it is unique and beautiful. I'm pretty sure that Isaiah is a book of the Bible that is very special to them.

When his wife was going through her bout with cancer, she was doing a lot of reading in the book of Isaiah. It helped her during that time and that is where they came up with the idea to name their little girl Isaiah.
