random picture of the day is an awesome idea…
but dang phil, you have some “devoted” fans…
I’m just waiting for your next post, quoting that e-trade baby…”i really underestimated the creepiness”
i’m just saying
Very cute! You need to put up a full family picture.
Also- when you get a chance, I want to hear what happened with the HALO competition!
The photo is great, Phil!! How sweet you are to share them with us! You have a lovely family.
You are a special guy
those are quite possibly the cutest little girls ever!! you’re prob the cool uncle who lets them stay up past bedtime lol
they are so beautiful🙂
Your nieces are adorable! And whoever took that photo did a fantastic job. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Cute kids. Phil and his buddies down in Tampa are lucky. I’d like to be able to go to the beach now. It’s cold up here in the New York city area.
I bet you’re the “cool” uncle
They are cute! I know the feeling. I am constantly showing pics of my niece and nephew also. Thank you for sharing. Looking forward to your post during the season. Best of luck against USF!
That is an adorable picture.
aw! cute picture!
I watched the one hour Office tonight…reruns but you can never get enough of them kidnapping the pizza delivery boy.
too cute! they look like theyre the same age as my 2 nieces its pretty cool that you share family picutes with your fans youve gotta be one cool uncle phil haha good with with the spring training games! see you in new york soon!
Amazing picture ..two cuties and awesome scenery. Kudos to the photographer …
I think you should make Random Picture of the Day a daily feature. It really is nice of you to share experiences and family with us…the fans.
Phil, you are such a fantastic person. When I watch your interviews…the maturity you display at such a young age is truly impressive. Keep up the good work …and ..I’ll say it again …your parents raised you right !!!!
Also ..congrats for being Yankee Player of the Month on the It’s High, It’s Far….it’s Caught blog. “Bronx Blogger” Phil Hughes named YANKEE OF THE MONTH
Can’t wait for the Questions and Answers blog ….
Go Yankees 2008 !!!!
Aww, they are so cute!
are you the type of uncle that spoils his nieces? you seem like you may be😉
Very cool idea with random picture of the day. Cant wait for the Q & A.
I’m a Scranton season ticket holder and it was a pleasure to watch you pitch there last year.
Aww, how cute. And beautiful names. Sister’s kids? Brother’s?
awww they are so cute. love the picture. it is very much random though!=] nice idea. the random pictures, i mean.
Most importantly, are they Yankee fans?
First time poster, long time reader…
the picture is brilliant, great sepia tones…I recently took up photography as a hobby, is there a way to share a photo on here. That might be a good contest for the future, best picture in a certain catagory or something like that. Anyway, just wanted to say good luck against my bulls. I went to grad school at USF. I worked with the baseball team and the volleyball team as an athletic trainer.
what a cutie lol
Is that at Corona Del Mar?
I have to be honest this whole site is really awesome getting to know you better as a person and more than just a ball player. I’ve been keeping tabs on you since high school, I even played against you. I played for La Mirada.
Good luck tomorrow. Go Get ‘Em!
Your nieces are adorable!!! I love the random picture of the day. Keep it up!!! (please!)
Phil, you’re nieces are just beautiful……and what gorgeous names.
What a photo – where is that? I wish I were there right now – it’s about 20 degrees in NY
awww…they’re adorable. I have cousins about their ages….if I guess the ages correctly….
That’s a great picture. I like your new “random picture” feature. It’s pretty cool.
Aside from that, I’m walking on cloud nine right now. I noticed a few days ago that they were auctioning off one one of those framed “I want to thank the Good Lord” Joe Dimaggio signs over at MLB.com auctions. This one was signed by our boy Phil and the opening bid was $100. I threw down a bid thinking I was bound to be overbid at some point. The auction ended about 25 minutes ago and I’m happy to say I walked away the winner. I was the sole bidder and snaked it for a cool $100!!! Awesome deal considering Steiner sells them unsigned for $150, and they sell them signed by Phil for $250. And I’ve got mine for $100!!! I’m stoked!! I was literally biting my nails watching the timer count down, refreshing every 2 seconds expecting to see a higher bid.
Keep up the good work Phil. Good luck against So. Florida.
Also, I have 9 nieces and nephews (with number 10 on the way), so I know what it’s like to be incredibly proud of them.
I want to echo what someone else said – this blog is great because you are allowing us to get to know you as a person instead of just a number. Phil, you are truly creating something very special and clearly you now have a bond with Yankee fans all over the world. It’s really wonderful for you to share your life with us –
go get ’em tomorrow big fella!
I love these random pictures
Good luck tomorrow Phil
so you just meet your relatives on a beach with a nice sunset. Nice though always nice to know the Hughes’s.
I guess that’s Newport Beach?
wow great picture, loving the background…cute nieces too
Thats a very cute picture, whoever took it has some talent behind the lens.
Your nieces are very cute and the picture is amazing! Nothing like a California sunset. Your nieces remind me of my nieces Carolyn and Katie they love when I take pictures of them and that is just two of thirteen nieces and nephews! Whew it gets crazy at christmas time….
that could pass for a professional pic, if it isn’t…. thanks for showing us your family to us Phil- -we appreciate it! Good luck for the rest of spring
Phil you are so awesome sharing ths type of stuff. Good luck today against usf.
Very sweet. Beautiful shot with the ocean behind them. Do you have any more nieces or nephews? It has to be something when your uncle is a famous baseball player!
thats some picture! thanks phil
Really nice picture of your nieces, Phil. I’ll echo the comments that the “Random Picture of the Day” is a really neat idea.
Pretty little ladies. I’m assuming they’re Yankees fan, that is if they are baseball fans first at such a tender age. Awww, Stella has your smile, I think. I love kids.
Good luck against USF today, I know you’re gonna pitch an inning too.
Petra looks like Phil.
Hey Phil where are the pics of the Halo Tourney?
Aww, nice picture : )
Hope you do well in the game today against USF
just checked out the q&a on the lohud blog, it went great. nice work phil!
nice picture phil – did you snap that one?
also, agreeing with many others, i like this new “random picture of the day” feature… great idea…
Nice Pic Hughes. Good Luck this year!
Sweet pic! That was a great Q & A with PeteAbe. Some of the questions were a riot.
Cute kids, Phil how old are they! They must thinkthe world of you! Do they ever go watch you play! How cool would it be to have a uncle or someone you know that close to you that plays for the greatest team ever! Are they Yankees fans?
HOW DO U PUT A PIC ON DA SITE
I just checked out the Q & A from Pete’s blog……..the audio accompanied was an added touch~
Also…. Sweet photo of you delivering a pitch!! NICE.
They are absolutely adorable, where was the picture taken? Who took it – is it professional? It’s amazing! Thanks for sharing it with us!
You got a really great picture here… I really love the background… Awesome…
Nice picture phil being and uncle to is cool they must love to see you.
Phil, are you a Godfather?
I just checked the boxscore to see the score and we are kicking ass!
Not just the yanks, but you Ian and Joba too!
NY Yankees IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Chamberlain 2.0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0.00
Kennedy 2.0 1 0 0 0 2 0 0.00
Hughes 1.0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0.00
Phil actually had 2 strikeouts…the boxscore is a little off for some reason
He struck out the first 2 batters on 4 pitches each and the 3rd one flied out to right.
Nice job Phil🙂
yeah great job today man
good job on the pitching Phil!
2K’s—SSSAAAAwwweeeeeeeettt!!! We, the Phil Fans, all love you!!
Nothing but the best!
Phil, Congratulations on a great game! Nice work out there on the mound!
Lovely young ladies. May the good Lord bless them always.
That is a really nice picture. You are a good photographer.
that is a wird picture
so real it’s unreal. So unreal it’s real.
Like a postcard, so beautiful .
ima take this from the fresh prince of bel-air
Awww, they look like they are about the same age as my two girls, 7 1/2 and 4.
That is a great picture. Very cute neices and the photographer takes great photos
cashman, needs to lock these girls up in a developmental deal, send them down to the domincian so they do not need to be drafted.
they care cuties…I take my Nephews and Niece to a ton of Yankee games throughout the season..they call me “uncle bestest” LOL So, I know the love an Uncle has for a nephew, a niece or both! =-)
p.s. tell derek jeter and mike mussina i said hi
