Chase Utley – born December 17, 1978 in Pasadena, CA. He went to Long Beach Polytechnic high school and moved on to play at UCLA.
In high school Utley spent his days working at a batting cage right next to the Long Beach airport – a batting cage I spent a lot of my days… until it was closed about 7 years ago.
I got the chance to talk to the owner of the batting cage and he told me about how Chase Utley worked at the batting cage. Yes he got paid, but the main reason he worked there was because he could and would take hacks for free whenever the business was slow.
It’s no surprise he turned out to be such a great hitter!
