What if the Philadelphia Eagles were a baseball team?
Football season is approaching quickly. The Philadelphia Eagles could be back at the NovaCare Complex and running drills very soon. It’s not clear when we’ll see them back in action with the preseason in question due to concerns with COVID-19, but we’ll hopefully have football back before we have time to blink.
On the other hand, the other three major sports leagues are planning to return in just a matter of weeks. Philadelphia fans will have their sports teams back even though they won’t be able to attend games, but hey. We’ll take sports any when we can get them at this point.
Major League Baseball will be the first to return with opening day scheduled for July 23rd. This season is one of the most highly anticipated in recent Philadelphia Phillies’ history with new manager Joe Girardi, a new coaching staff, and some new additions. Fans are starving for the team’s first postseason appearance since 2011.
What if there was a slight twist on the 2020 season though? What if we saw the Philadelphia Eagles take the field at Citizens Bank Park instead? This certainly creates plenty of interesting conversations. What would a roster look like? It’s fun to think about some of the Eagles linemen connecting with a ball right on the barrel or the wide receivers and corners tracking down fly balls in the outfield. The competition would be fun to watch with all of these phenomenal athletes on the Eagles’ roster.
With that said, here are nine Eagles that would make a nice starting lineup on the baseball diamond.
