Mickey Morandini - 1993 National League Champion Phillie & Club Ambassador
Mickey Morandini is in his first year as a club ambassador with the Phillies. He had spent the previous two years with the team as first base coach and baserunning instructor.
Prior to joining the major league staff, Mickey spent five years in the Phillies minor league system as a coach for triple-A Lehigh Valley and double-A Reading and manager for single-A Lakewood and single-A Williamsport. He also spent four years as head coach for the Valparaiso High School varsity baseball team.
A 1995 National League All-Star, Mickey played nine of his 11 major league seasons with the Phillies and was a member of the 1993 NL Champions. He ranks fourth in Phillies history in most games played at second base (926) and was the recipient of the Paul Owens Award in 1989 as the best player in the Phillies minor league system. Mickey was originally selected by the Phillies in the fifth round of the 1988 draft out of Indiana University.
Born in Leechburg, Pa., Mickey and his wife Peg currently live in Glen Mills, Pa., with their three sons, Jordan, Griffin and Michael.
