Phillies right fielder Hunter Pence talks with Philly2Philly.com

Philly2Philly had the chance to speak to Phillies right fielder Hunter Pence at the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association dinner on Monday.
 
Pence was the sports writers association’s choice for the ‘Good Guy Award,’ quite an honor for a player who only arrived in Philadelphia a little over six months ago.  

“It’s pretty amazing. I’m grateful to have won the award and be a part of the community,” said Pence, just prior to being bombarded by more of the local press.

Pence used the Phillies’ loss to the Cardinals in the NLDS last October to prepare harder than ever for a strong 2012.

“We didn’t reach the ultimate goal,” laments Pence. “I think that’s a big motivator for you everyday in the off-season.”

Watch the complete interview here. We got Pence before everyone else did, so you'll have to excuse the bright lights near the end!
