2010 Chachi #14 Ben Francisco

I skipped ahead in the 2010 Chachi set this afternoon due to the heroics of Wilson Valdez in yesterday's matinee with the Giants. We're back on track tonight with Ben Francisco, #14 in the series.

Phillies debut: July 30, 2009
Major League debut: May 1, 2007
How acquired: Acquired from the Cleveland Indians with Cliff Lee for Carlos Carrasco, Jason Donald, Jason Knapp and Lou Marson, July 29, 2009
Others wearing #10 in the 2000s: Travis Lee 2000, Larry Bowa (manager) 2001-2004, Joe Thurston 2007, Geoff Jenkins 2008, Ben Francisco 2009
2009 Postseason: Ben went hitless in 11 Postseason at-bats. He started in left field in World Series Games 1 and 6.
Pictured: It's not easy finding a good picture of Ben Francisco. He is an elusive man. I had to settle for this shot of Ben receiving post-game high fives following the Phillies World Series Game 1 victory, October 28, 2009.
