Phillies manager has great quote about Nick Williams hitting his car with homer
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Williams nailed his Gabe Kapler’s rental car with a home run during batting practice on Tuesday, and the manager loved it.
Kapler had a perfect quote about the matter when talking with reporters:
Nick Williams hit Gabe Kapler's SUV with a batting-practice homer today. “I would trade a Nick Williams home run for a dent in a rental car, any day of the week," Kapler said.

What’s funny is that on Wednesday, Williams nearly repeated the trick.
After denting Kapler's car yesterday with a home run, Nick Williams nearly hit it again today during BP. "If he is destroying cars and it happens to be mine, no problem. We're going to make it a bullseye for him." #Phillies

If this means Williams is in for a big season, Kapler will be game. The 24-year-old outfielder had a nice rookie campaign as he batted .288 with an .811 OPS in 83 games last year. Maybe he’ll be able to improve upon last year’s home run total of 12.
