Phillies legend and current Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley is holding a press conference Friday afternoon in Los Angeles.

After signing a two-year, $2-million deal before the season, Utley has played in 57 games, 30 of them starts, and was batting.231 with a.644 one-base-plus-slugging percentage, one home run and 14 RBIs in 147 plate appearances entering Friday night's game against the Angels. He earned six All-Star selections, four Silver Sluggers, and went down in Phillies history as "The Man" thanks to Harry Kalas.

For his career, Utley hit.282 against the Mets, with 39 home runs, and 197 hits, the most he amassed against any team. The Phillies traded Utley to the Los Angeles Dodgers in August 2015 for minor leaguers Darnell Sweeney and John Richy. Utley was suspended for Games 3 and 4 of the series. But his role has been reduced from starter in 2016 to platoon player previous year to part-time starter and pinch-hitter this season.

With the help of a broad network of volunteers, SpaceIL has already made presentations to about 900,000 children nationwide. Israel could become the fourth country that sent a spaceship to the moon after USA, Russia and China .

During the fabled 2008 season Utley hit.292 with 33 home runs, 41 doubles, and 104 RBI. His former teammates from the 2008 championship team, Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth, recently announced their retirements.

The faithful in Philadelphia, where he played for 12-plus seasons, will have another chance to see Utley in action when the Dodgers play in Philadelphia July 23-25.
