Andy Phillips personal appearance

According to, Andy Phillips will be appearing at a fund-raiser at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Thursday, September 16, 2010. It's to raise money for the Sprayberry Education Center.

A silent auction will feature sports memorabilia from former Alabama players and current professional players. The list of autographed baseballs includes balls signed by Derek Jeter, Ken Griffey Jr., Jim Thome, Nolan Ryan, Joe Mauer, David Ortiz and Dale Murphy. Helmets and jerseys signed by Nick Saban, Gene Chizik, Brodie Croyle, Taylor Tankersley, Andy Phillips and Dale Murphy will be auctioned.

Former UA wide receiver Tyrone Prothro and All-American shortstop Andy Phillips will headline the list of former Alabama athletes available for autographs and photographs.

I would totally go if I lived anywhere near Alabama!

I'm not sure how Andy did in Japan this year. I saw one article that said he was "disappointing," and his team finished dead last in the standings. I couldn't find his stats;, previously the best source for Japanese baseball stats in English, has been down for maintenance. And I couldn't decipher his page at the Rakuten Eagles web site.

I wonder if he'll go back to Japan next year, or play in AAA here, or retire. (If anyone goes to that fund-raiser, ask him! And take pictures.)

Where's Andy in this photo?

Just in case you haven't found out yet, here are the individual stats.

Rakuten announced the release of its manager Marty Brown yesterday.

Thanks. Andy apparently didn't do too well this year. I wonder if he was injured or something.
