When the minor-league baseball Harrisburg Senators took the field last night for the first game of the Eastern League playoffs against Reading, they were representing an unlikley success story for a born-again baseball town. Not only has Harrisburg managed to bring back baseball after a 35-year absence. The team also has won almost unbelievable local support, created a mini-revitalization of downtown and City Island, and gone, in its first season, from cellar-dweller to the playoffs.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Lefthander Jesse Biddle prepared for another day with the rest of the Phillies' minor-league players in a crowded clubhouse that contained prospects of all levels. The team's first-round draft choice out of Germantown Friends in 2010, Biddle said he enjoyed his brief time in the major-league camp this year. Even though he did not achieve the results he wanted in his two outings, Biddle feels he will be better for the experience. Biddle, 22, was sent down to the minor-league camp on March 8. He was not disappointed because he knows the landscape.

HARRISBURG - Reading third baseman Maikel Franco understands the excitement and expectations his play has generated in a Phillies minor-league system that could definitely use an impact player. After dominating at high-A Clearwater earlier this year, Franco is doing the same since he was called up to double-A Reading. Yet when asked about appearing with the Phillies, possibly as early as next season, Franco smiled broadly. "Everybody wants to play in the big leagues, but it is not my decision," he said before a game last week against the Harrisburg Senators, the double-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.

READING - Crowded into a corner of the Reading Fightin Phils team store, nestled between rows of New Era caps, key chains, and foam fingers, Carlos Zambrano was a long way from the big- league lifestyle he had become accustomed to over a 12-year career. The veteran righthander fielded questions in a makeshift news conference Saturday night, minutes after he'd turned in his third start of the season in the Phillies farm system since signing as a minor-league free agent May 15. "You have to do what you have to do," Zambrano said after a 2-1 Reading victory.

HARRISBURG - Dusty Wathan played 14 minor-league seasons, and this is his sixth year managing in the Phillies system.

The Phillies prospect pitched seven shutout innings, allowing one hit and two walks while striking out 16 in a 3-2 win over the Harrisburg Senators, the double-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
