Phillies Locker Room Tour: Part 1 of 2

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!

Ryan Howard’s locker contains:

  • Phillies cap, 26 bats, a bunch of pairs of Under Armour batting gloves
  • Ryan Howard bobblehead, an unidentified box also found in Brett Myers’s locker
  • These blue things that are also found in Cole Hamels’s locker
  • Houston Astros jersey(?), a few pair of socks, Oakley sunglasses, Adidas spikes

Pat Burrell’s locker contains:

  • Photo of the Rat Pack signed by Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford, Dean Martin, Joey Bishop & Sammy Davis, Jr.
  • Phillies ski cap
  • 20 bats (19 black w/ #5 written on it; 1 wood w/ #2)
  • 1 Baseball and a couple pair of sunglasses
  • Traxxas REVO Off Road Nitro Radio Control Truck (minus the wheels)

Bonus close up!

Cole Hamels’s locker contains:

  • 5 bats (4 w/ #35 written on it; 1 w/ #47 [Scott Mathieson])
  • An unidentified cap
  • These blue things that are also found in Ryan Howard’s locker

**Contrary to the Phillies commercial, there is no Strawberry Peppermint Lotion for troubled skin.

Brett Myers’s locker contains:

  • 9 bats
  • Flip-up sunglasses (for a pitcher?), 2 caps, an unidentified box that is also found in Ryan Howard’s locker, 2 bottles of water
  • Pictures of his son & daughter, most likely taken at Picture People
  • Utz baseball themed potato chips, Wilson A2000 ASO-B Glove, box from Under Armour

Tom Gordon’s locker contains:

  • Batting gloves; 5 bats (4 w/ #45 written on it; 1 w/#53 [Abreu? Eckgh.])
  • 11 Superhero action figures including Captain America, Batman, Superman (taking a nap), Wonder Woman and of course, The Flash
  • Some pictures, a Phillies schedule and a computer printout of Tom Gordon’s fan group called “Flash’s Followers”
  • Phillies St. Paddy’s day cap, some Dr. Scholl’s inserts, hand lotion, Johnson’s baby oil and Johnson’s baby powder
  • Copy of the duPont Registry

    The picture of the Rat Pack just goes to show Burrell is a pimp!

  2. Patrick Smith says:

    Meech, this is genius. Above and beyond. Where else can you get this kind of insight?

    Ryan Howard has an Astros jersey in his locker?

    I can’t wait for part II.

  3. Clare says:

    I know what the weird blue things are: They’re these goofy souveneir leis from Hawaii. When I was on vacation in March, I saw versions of them with packets of macadamia nuts inside them, or little airplane bottles of liquor inside.

  4. Thank you, Clare. That was driving me crazy.

    The best I could come up with was a buncha Ring Pops connected like sausage links.

  5. Joey says:

    This is great investigative reporting. If I were a player I think my locker would look like Howard’s. Cole needs to get some stuff in his. You would think by looking at it that he is expecting to be sent back to the minors. Not a chance though, here is in the big show now.

  6. Michael Kelley says:

    The hat in Cole Hamels’ locker is a Missouri State University Bears hat (which is where Ryan Howard went to school).
