The Phillies Are A Jolly Good Show This Summer

The Philadelphia Phillies are in London to play the New York Mets for a weekend series. The MLB World Tour London Series features this matchup between two arch-rivals, making for a great weekend of baseball.  Former Phillies and Mets greats have accompanied the teams to reflect on the National League East rivalry to help make the fans who have traveled across the pond have a more memorable experience.


The Phillies have the best record in the National League and look to continue their winning ways against the Mets who are eight games under .500 this season.  Phillies are making the Summer of 2024 even more fun!


The Eagles finished mandatory minicamp this week and several players held press conferences but the one player I was the least encouraged to hear from: Quarterback Jalen Hurts.  His subdued personality and lack of a ringing endorsement of his Head Coach leave me scratching my head.  Eagles fans want to be excited for the 2024 NFL season and for me, the Franchise Quarterback is deflating with his attitude.


This Saturday is the 156th running of the Belmont Stakes and the third leg of Horse Racing's Triple Crown.  This year, the Belmont will be held at Saratoga Race Course for what should be an entertaining race.  Both winners from the Kentucky Derby ( Mystik Dan) and Preakness ( Seize the Gray) will run in this weekend.


The NBA finals started Thursday Night with a lopsided Boston Celtics win and the NHL starts the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday night when the Edmonton Oilers face off with the Florida Panthers.  The Locker Room with Billy Schweim will cover it all this weekend on 973 ESPN Radio South Jersey!


On Saturday’s show, Producer Nick Earnshaw and Mike Carlin will join me in the studio.  During the first hour, we will talk about if the Phillies are the best team in baseball.  Then we will hear from the Fastlanehandicapper.com himself Jeffrey Nash.  Nash will handicap the third leg of the Triple Crown.


In Hour Two we will discuss the state of the Eagles after their Mandatory Minicamp and analyze Jalen Hurts' latest comments.  Finally, it’s our third edition of the Beach Patrol Report brought to you by McCann Realtors of Sea Isle City and the Ocean City Beach Patrol Lifeguard Alumni Association.  Former Lieutenant of the Ocean City BP Jack Brooks will stop by and we will hear from Captain of the Ventnor City Beach Patrol David Funk. 


On Sunday’s show, my Locker Room Youth Movement is back in studio as Producer Danny Ryan and "The Intern” Andrew Leeds join me to recap the sports weekend.  Every Sunday throughout the baseball season we go “On the Mound” with former Phillies Pitcher Tommy Greene brought to you by Blitz’s Market of Ocean City. Tommy will share his thoughts on the Phillies sweep of the Brewers and the weekend series versus the Mets. Plus Eagles and Sixers talk will round out the show.


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.
