Young Phillies Fan Heartbroken Over Chase Utley Trade

Much of the Philadelphia Phillies' fan base felt a tug at their heartstrings upon hearing that longtime Phils second baseman Chase Utley was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

One fan, however, seemed a bit more upset than the rest of them.

Bill Mackiewicz of Glenmoore, Pennsylvania had to inform his son that his favorite player was gone, and the kid was not happy.

From the video, the young Phillies fan can be heard saying, "He was the best guy on our team!"

The video was posted to Facebook Wednesday, and has gone viral, with nearly 400,000 views in just 48 hours.

We're pretty sure the kid's not the only one who shed a tear over Utley's departure.

Utley debuted for the Phils over 12 years ago, and quickly became a household name. He will be remembered as one of the most popular Phillies players of all time.
