Tom Highway: We’re here with Montgomery Bombers superstar Philip Maxwell. Philip tell me what you felt when you started closing in on 500 career Home Runs.
Maxwell: Well I must admit I felt a sense of entitlement. Being in a world where you’re the all-time Home Run leader, it’s a special feeling. As I got closer I felt the pressure. When 499 left the park I knew the next one would be hard to get. It’s a relief to know that monkey is off my back.
Tomhighway: Do you see yourself being the All-Time career Home Run leader for a long time?
Maxwell: It depends, I have a lot of time left. I may put the mark way out of anyone’s range. Hard to answer right now.
Tom Highway: Do you think you’ll stay in Montgomery until you retire?
Maxwell: That’s out of my hands, It all depends on what management has in store for me. I realize this is business, so I don’t get my hopes up. If I had my way I’d end my career as a Bomber. Only time will tell.
Tom Highway:: Come on Philip.. Can you tell me anything without having an open ended answer?
Maxwell: I take it one day at a time. I don’t put all my eggs into one basket. A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Got any more clichés for me?
Tom Highway:: And I bet your car insurance is through Geico… Right?
Maxwell: I don’t drive , I have a limo driver to take me where I want to go. Next Question!!!
Tom Highway: Nice I only have an Escalade..
Mike Prince: Mr. Maxwell I have a question for you.
Maxwell:Yes, go ahead.
Mike Prince: What did you give the boy who caught the record setting ball?
Maxwell:: First of all I don’t interact with the fans. I have people do that for me. And from what I was told by one of my boys is that they got the ball relatively easy. I wasn’t told I had to give up anything. Wasn’t that nice?
Mike Prince: Are you planning on keeping it or donating it to the Hall of Fame?
Maxwell: Depends how I feel, not sure how I feel about it right now though. I’d like to stare at it for a little while longer. I plan on sleeping with it tonight, then after that we’ll see where things go.
Tom Highway:: Thank you Mr. Maxwell for your time.
Maxwell: No problem.
