Tommy Joseph reported to spring training last February as a 24-year-old in minor-league camp. He was nine months removed from being forced to learn to play first base after a series of concussions ended his catching career. Joseph was an afterthought on baseball's fringe. The goal, he said after Wednesday night's 8-3 win over the White Sox, was to stay healthy and perform well enough this season in triple A that the Phillies would promote him to the major leagues when rosters expanded in September.

Gov. Christie said Sunday that the explosion of a pipe bomb in a garbage can along the route for the Seaside Semper Five charity 5k race in Seaside Park, Ocean County, the day before was an act of "terrorism. " In a televised interview Sunday with CNN's Jake Tapper, Christie said that there are no suspects in the case yet, but that investigators do have "some promising leads. " Christie said there was no evidence to suggest that the bomb in Seaside Park had any connection to a bomb that exploded Saturday night in New York City, injuring 29 people, or a stabbing at a Minnesota mall that injured nine.

For months, in batting cages across the country, Steve Henderson has preached to his Phillies hitters. Hunt the fastball, the hitting coach said. A hitter is not established in the majors until he can handle a fastball, and the Phillies are full of unestablished hitters. They clobbered five hits Saturday in the five-run first inning of a 8-0 romp over Miami at Citizens Bank Park. All five of the hits were on Jose Urena fastballs. Cesar Hernandez singled. Odubel Herrera doubled. Tommy Joseph singled.

But after two decades of planning, construction, lane movement, and often-maddening commutes for motorists in one of the region's fastest growing population and development corridors, what was once a two-lane road on Friday officially became a six-lane highway from the Schuylkill Expressway to the Route 30 interchange.

The project dates to the late 1990s, but for tens of thousands of motorists who have contended with the shifting lanes, bulky vehicles, construction crews, and sometimes bewildering lane shifts on Route 202, it might have seemed eternal. "People feel like this has been going on forever," said John Ewald, manager of corporate and community relations for the Transportation Management Association of Chester County. "There is that sense of endless construction. " But the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Thursday that the widening of Route 202, one of the region's busiest and fastest-growing corridors, is coming to an end. PennDot said all six lanes of the expressway on the widened 2.5-mile section in East Whiteland Township would be open by the end of next week.
