With the Phillies struggling historically this baseball season, an unlikely source brought fans to their feet yesterday for a rare moment of celebration.

Outfielder Jeff Francouer launched a walk-off home run into the Citizens’ Bank Park seats Sunday, with the two-run blast lifting the Phillies to a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins. Verizon FiOS provided the perfect picture quality to take in the walk-off celebration, and since fiber optics literally travel at the speed of light, customers knew right away when Frenchy’s homer reached the stands.

Francouer, among other Phillies, has been the subject of trade rumblings as the July 31st trade deadline looms. With the Phillies preparing for an action-packed deadline, baseball fans across the Delaware Valley will be obsessively tracking the latest trade rumors, management press conferences, and player quotes. A wise baseball fan would look to Verizon services to take in the deadline day drama.

To tune into a plethora of sports channels such as Comcast Sportsnet, and national channels like ESPN, FOX Sports, and MLB Network, choose Verizon. Fans can cover all their bases—no pun intended—by surfing the Verizon sports channels to catch all the rumors and speculation. Fiber optics aren’t affected by severe weather conditions the way satellite and dish services are, so even if the night’s baseball game is rained out, the trade deadline coverage won’t be.

With social media and blogging such a huge part of sports news, Verizon FiOS is the fastest service to read the latest internet rumors. The Verizon technology steers users away from “internet rush hour:” the 7 PM hour when households use internet the most. Fans get more rush out of ‘rush hour’ because of the FiOS dedicated connection, which doesn’t share bandwidth with neighbors.

This means fans can follow Philadelphia Sports Nation’s coverage on Facebook, Twitter, and the website faster than most, and will get the latest news as soon as we do!

Verizon is clearly the wise choice for baseball fans at the trade deadline. Now, if only Ruben Amaro Jr. would make some smart decisions…
