Memorial Day Weekend Starts Summer Season for Phillies and Beach Patrol Report

Article Written by Billy Schweim

Originally Published on May 24, 2024

Memorial weekend is here and it’s also the unofficial start to the summer season!  We look forward to this weekend all year long which means school is almost over and summer begins.


It’s also the start of our Beach Patrol Report - The Locker Room with Billy Schweim covers all the beach patrol races and competitions throughout the summer season. Every Saturday we will talk with representatives of each beach patrol from Brigantine (last year’s winner of the South Jersey Lifeguard championships) to Cape May Point; Each week's Beach Patrol Report is brought to you by McCann Realtors and the Ocean City Beach Patrol Lifeguard Alumni Association. 


The Philadelphia Phillies are RED HOT (17-3 this month) and on pace to win 118 games.  Their pitching has been the main reason for their success as they own the lowest starting rotation ERA in major league baseball at 2.64.  The Phils are currently six games in front of the Atlanta Braves and head west for a six-game road trip against the Rockies and Giants. The Colorado and San Francisco have a combined record of 41-59 and were both swept by the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park earlier this season. 


The Eagles just finished their most recent session of Offseason Training Activities and we will cover it all this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim. 


On Saturday’s show, Producer Nick Earnshaw and Mike Carlin join me in the studio.  We will recap the Phillies vs Rockies Friday night action plus review the week for the Eagles at OTAs.  In Hour Two, the Sports Book Consigliere Dave Sharapan checks in from Las Vegas with his thoughts on the NBA and NHL playoffs. 


Then we Kick off the Beach Patrol report brought to you by McCann Realtors of Sea Isle City and the OCBP alumni association.  Former OCBP alumni Jack Brooks stops by the studio to get things started.  Our first guest will be the Chief of the Brigantine Beach Patrol Kip Emig.  Brigantine won the South Jersey Lifeguard Championship last season and will talk about what the preparations have been life for the 2024 summer season for the reigning and defending Champions. 


On Sunday’s show, my Locker Room Youth Movement is back in studio: Producer Nick Earnshaw and "The Intern” Andrew Leeds will debate the weekend in Philadelphia sports with me.  Every Sunday throughout the baseball season we go “On the Mound” with former Phillies Pitcher Tommy Greene brought to you by Blitz’s Market in Ocean City.  Tommy talks about the Phillies hot month of May and previews Sunday’s game.


All that and more this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, heard every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to Noon on 973 ESPN Radio South Jersey.
