Phillies Star Shortstop Trea Turner Ready For Home Debut

Written by Tony Ghaul

Phillies star shortstop Trea Turner’s first home game in front of a raucous Philadelphia crowd will be a great day for this city.

Turner’s first time in a Phillies home uniform represents something special. It solidifies this team, when healthy, as a perennial contender.

A team that will feature two big-time superstars in Turner and Bryce Harper. When Harper returns from injury, the lineup should take off.

The are now a relevant franchise again. It all began with the signing of Harper. A gigantic contract, NL MVP Award and a World Series appearance.

The signing of Harper was with it. Now, with the signing of Turner, the Phillies should be in the mix for the near future.

Through the first six games, Turner has been everything that he was supposed to be. He is 10 for 27 with a .370 batting average. Turner has a double, two triples and two RBIs so far.

The Phillies fan base is going to enjoy watching Trea Turner play. He will delight the fans with his exciting play.
