Devin Smeltzer Challenge
In 2006, Phillies second baseman Chase Utley met 9-year-old cancer patient Devin Smeltzer, who was receiving treatment at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Utley took time out of his pregame routine to sign Smeltzer’s hat. Fast forward to 2018, Chase Utley plays for the Dodgers, and Devin, a cancer survivor, is playing for the Dodgers Class A Advanced minor league team.
Devin supports Katie’s Krusaders by attending our events, bringing in sponsors and auction items. He raised funds his last year in college with pledges for a Strike Out Challenge – striking out 99 batters. He wants to do it again.
