There aren't many days off in spring training.
So when the Phillies had one Tuesday, Rhys Hoskins took a break from Grapefruit League competition and took in some NHL action down the road at Amalie Arena as the Tampa Bay Lightning hosted the Florida Panthers.
The Lightning welcomed the Phillies' slugger with a tweet naming him the #BoltsSocial captain of the game.
#Bolts fans, please welcome tonight's @budweiserusa #BoltsSocial captain, @rhyshoskins of the @Phillies! ⚾️⚡️ #FLAvsTBL pic.twitter.com/zvTHuOzdNt— x - Tampa Bay Lightning (@TBLightning) March 7, 2018
Complete coverage of the Philadelphia Flyers and their rivals in the NHL from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Hoskins is quite the athlete. Along with baseball, he also played football and basketball at Jesuit High School in Carmichael, California. He was clearly excited for the game and was simply being a good sport by saying Go Bolts, showing his appreciation for the hospitality.
To no surprise, some Flyers fans took exception.
But don't worry.
Hoskins made sure to point out he's pulling for the orange and black. He even picked what would be an awesome Eastern Conference Final.
Hey, Flyers fans would take that. And you can bet Hoskins would be there in support.
