Updated Sunday April 1, 2018 by Heartwell Pony-Colt League.

It seems as though we have waited an eternity to boast this phrase: J.P. Crawford is the everyday starting shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Ever since the now-22-year-old was selected 16th overall out of Lakewood high school in the 2013 MLB Draft, fans have clamored over what the future could hold in regards to Crawford. This year J.P. finally earned a spot on the opening day roster for the Major League ball club.

Congratulations and good luck on the season J.P.
