Plot Synopsis

"The Pen" is a reality series that follows the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen from Spring Training to the All-Star Break during the 2009 Major League Baseball season. Watch these pitchers compete for jobs, deal with the success and obligations of being 2008 World Champions, suffer through injuries and instigate hi-jinks and pranks. MLB Network outfitted the bullpen in Citizens Bank Park with a camera and microphone to bring unprecedented in-game footage and mixes that with on- and off-the-field interviews. The series also follows these players outside the stadium -- fishing trips, youth baseball games, the White House visit -- to show what they're really like. Featured relief pitchers include: Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson, J.C. Romero, Scott Eyre, Clay Condrey, Chad Durbin, Gary Majewski, Jack Taschner, J.A. Happ and Chan Ho Park.
