Apple Vacations and the Philadelphia Phillies recently hosted over 200 Phillies Phans on “Phancation 2014” at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun.
While much of the U.S. was in a “Polar Vortex”, Phancationers were enjoying warmer temperatures in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The group was hosted by Phillies broadcaster Scott Palmer, The Phillie Phanatic, Alumni players Tommy Greene and Greg Luzinski , current Phillies player Domonic Brown and MLB player Erik Kratz. Kratz was traded just prior to the Phancation to Toronto, but he was still a welcome member of the group!
Phancationers were treated to private Mexican fiestas, beach parties, pool games, breakfast with the Phanatic, a private autograph session and a private photo session! Phancationers also performed in “Phancationers Have Talent” and “Phancation Idol” with the Phillies players and alumni as judges.
Some of the highlights of the week were Dom Brown’s water balloon fight, Tommy Greene’s attempt to surf in the pool, Erik Kratz trying to win the belly-flop contest, Greg Luzinski’s Jenga strategy and guest bartending and Scott Palmer and Friend of The Phanatic, Tom Burgoyne’s, “Dos Amigos” performances.
Apple Vacations had a great time with this group and even the rain showers we had while in resort, did not dampen our fun.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the ballpark in 2014! Go Phillies!
