The speedy outfielder is hoping to turn in a more consistent season in Reading this year.


Baseballtown is set to host opening day Thursday against Portland. The Fightin Phils are looking for a bounce back season, as is their center fielder Zach Collier.

A member of the Phillies 40-man roster, Collier hit just .222 last season.

However, the speedster finished the year on an absolute tear, sending him into the offseason with some momentum.

Collier tried to pick-up where he left off in spring training. He says that started with discipline and making sure he's being proactive early this season.
