Eagles Stars Jalen Hurts And A.J. Brown Took Batting Practice With The Phillies

Written by Tony Ghaul

Philadelphia Eagles stars A.J. Brown and Jalen Hurts stopped by Citizens Bank Park to take some swings.

Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, Bryson Stott, Rhys Hoskins and Josh Harrison stopped to chat and watch the two take some swings.

Hurts said he and Brown were practicing for DeVonta Smith’s celebrity softball game Saturday at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown.

Brown, who was drafted out of high school by the Padres in 2016, hit a home run to left field off Phillies coach Bobby Dickerson. Brown hit two home runs during his session.

Slugger Kyle Schwarber was impressed by Brown. “He’s a strong guy,” Schwarber said upon walking back into the clubhouse.

Phillies Manager Rob Thomson said : “He’d be my four-hole hitter. Jalen would lead off.”

Hurts, who batted left handed, hit some balls into the gap.

Hurts hit the game-winning homerun at DeVonta Smith’s Celebrity softball game last summer.
