According to Bryce Harper's agent, Scott Boras, the Phillies' superstar player is looking for a…
The Phillies teased who was going to throw out the first pitch for Game 1 of the Wild Card series all day. Speculation swirled around the timeline, with everyone guessing who would be called upon. In case you missed the first pitch, the individual was none other than Rhys Hoskins.
Hoskins walked out of the dugout to a massive ovation from fans and delivered a strike to Kyle Schwarber:

As you probably know, Hoskins has been sidelined with an ACL tear that occurred in Spring Training. Even though he hasn’t played, he’s been a massive part of this team in the clubhouse.
I don’t think there’s a team in baseball with better chemistry than the Phillies. Tim Kurkjian said that watching them is almost like going to watch college baseball with the energy and camaraderie they share.
Hoskins’ teammates went just as crazy for him heading to the mound as the rabid fans in the stands. They know he’s on his way back, and he’s headed to Clearwater tomorrow to take part in live BP.
If the Phils make it deep into the postseason, we just may see Hoskins take the field. Not only would it be great to see him back in the box, but that mustache deserves more time on national TV.
