Swing and a Long Drive, a blog focusing on the Philadelphia Phillies and Major League Baseball, was created in July of 2008.

This site is intended to update the latest news and rumors, as well as give unbiased opinions, but also to have fun with the beautiful game known as baseball.

About the Author

The author of this blog, Amanda Orr, has been a huge and passionate Philadelphia Phillies fan since the day she was born. In January 2009, Orr was recruited by a popular Phillies website called Phillies Nation, where she continues to write today.

Orr graduated from Marple Newtown High School in 2010. She attended La Salle University for one year, but transferred to West Chester University in 2011.  Orr will graduate from West Chester in 2014; she is majoring in Middle Grades Education and minoring in Communication Studies.

Swing and a Long Drive grew rapidly until Orr decided to close the site in 2011, focusing on her studies and her work with Phillies Nation.
