PHILADELPHIA – Phillies second baseman Chase Utley visited St. Richard School in South Philadelphia with the Phillie Phanatic to celebrate the school’s reading success Jan. 26.

The fourth grade students participated in the “Be a Phanatic About Reading” program, sponsored by the Phillies, which required the students to read for at least 15 minutes per day.

The students were recognized by the Phillies’ Fan Development and Educational Programs Department.

When asked what his favorite book was in grade school, Utley said he enjoyed math, so it had to be his math book.
