Did you ever wonder what was inside the lockers of your favorite major leaguers?
Cot dammit! If I knew that, I woulda never broke into the The Bank to snap these pictures. I thought you’d be interested in this sorta thing. Oh, well — too late now.
This will be installment #1 of a 2-part series showcasing some of the contents of various Phillies lockers. The blastmaster himself, Ryan Howard is up first. After the jump, check out the lockers of Pat Burrell, Cole Hamels, Brett Myers & Tom Gordon. You’ll also notice that I embedded new teckmology that allows you to zoom in on the photo without saving it to your computer. Enjoy!
