Breaking: Cole Hamels Will Stay in Philly

New, 2 comments

Cole Hamels is giving a press conference right now and is actually getting choked up talking about staying in Philadelphia—a city he says he unfortunately knew nothing about when he was growing up across the country. Staying here is all about the Philly fans, he says, who can turn the tide of a game in the Phillies' favor. His decision may also be about the $144 million, six-year contract, the largest ever signed by a Philly athlete. He and wife Heidi and their two kids live in Newtown Square, having moved there from Center City when she had their first child. Will they stay in Newtown Square? We shall see. [Crossing Broad]
