Darin Ruf had a huge 2012 season in Reading, then made a splash in Philadelphia. This spring he's hoping to turn that splash into an every day job.

Baseball fans in Baseballtown got to witness some special things last summer, many of them flying off the bat of Darin Ruf.  38 times Ruf hit balls that left the yard, a new team record.  Now he's trying to earn his spot on the big league club.  Dan Moscaritolo has more from spring training. n
