Wearing No. 26, Utley stands in the middle of the field at second base, and conveniently at our center of attention.
Chase Utley was born on Dec 17, 1978, in Pasadena, California. He grew up a hometown baseball star, and even entertained professional scouts at his high school games. Both the Phillies and the Dodgers showed interest in Utley, but he decided to play at UCLA before entering the major leagues.
Utley was chosen by the Philadelphia Phillies in the first round in 2000, and has remained with the team ever since.
His first major league hit was a grand slam on April 24, 2003, a sort of foreshadowing to his career. Chase Utley has earned one world series ring, four silver slugger awards, made five all star appearances, and has captured our eyes over the last eleven years.
