Chase Utley Newsbeat

Former Phillie Chase Utley to join Dodgers broadcast team for select games

Chase Utley wasn’t the biggest or fastest player.

He always found advantages, though, through preparation and guile, outsmarting the opposition and capitalizing on the finest of details.

Phillies fans will never forget the fake throw to first to then nab Jason Bartlett at the plate during Game 5 of the 2008 Fall Classic, such an Utley-type play on the night the city was crowned world champions of baseball.

So, who in the booth’s going to end up with a broken leg?

Dodgers release Utley to facilitate retirement

And the retirees just keep on coming….

Chase Utley was given his unconditional release by the Dodgers on Friday so the veteran second baseman can officially retire. Utley announced in July that 2018 would be his final season.

“The thing I’m having the most difficult time with is being a part-time dad,” Utley said at a press conference to make the announcement. “So that’s really the reason I’m shutting it down. I’m ready to be a full-time dad.”

Utley played 16 seasons in the Majors. He played his first 13-plus seasons with the Phillies and was traded to Los Angeles in 2015, where he played his final three-plus years.
