Longtime Phillies and Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley will join the broadcast booth for the Freeway Series with the Anaheim Angels.
Just who is Chase Utley, who's making his @SportsNetLA debut tonight? @GemmaKaneko asked him some important questions for @Cut4, and he answered them accordingly. Find out who this guy is … https://t.co/8pF7BSpZiZ

Utley, 40, was a member of the Dodgers from 2015 to 2018 as a key contributor and veteran presence for the 2017 and 2018 World Series run teams.
The Silver Fox holds a lifetime .275 batting average, .843 on-base plus slugging, and blasted 259 home runs across 16 MLB seasons.
Utley was a six-time All-Star for the Philadelphia Phillies and won a World Series title with them in 2008.
He brings quite the resumé to the broadcast booth, but a large portion of the reason why he has been added is because he is well-regarded as one of the most knowledge baseball minds of the last couple decades.
As a member of the Dodgers’ clubs for the last four years, we heard quite often that Utley was something of a second manager in the clubhouse.
Good luck to Chase Utley in this next stage of his life.
