Watch former Phillie Pat Burrell wipe out on a wakeboard
As he rehabs an ankle injury and unwinds at the All-Star break, Chase Utley received just the levity he needed amid a rough season while vacationing with former Philadelphia Phillies teammate Pat Burrell.
Utley and Burrell headed out on a boat on Idaho’s Lake Coeur d’Alene for some relaxation and fun over the break – and some amusement as well.
Burrell, who was one of the Phillies’ most consistent offensive components during his nine-year tenure in Philadelphia, apparently doesn’t have the same ability on the water as he did at the plate.
Utley posted a video to his Instagram account of Burrell taking a hard spill on a wakeboard after getting caught outside the wake.
It might not have been Burrell’s finest moment, but it surely amused Utley, who can be heard laughing riotously in the video.
