Tony Phillips is an 18-year MLB veteran, spending most of his time with the Oakland A's.  After helping coach the A's in 2011, he and a player wanted to settle a bet, and see if Phillips still has it.  So Phillips decided to give baseball another shot, and at age 53, Phillips is trying out in El Paso and working out with the Diablos during Spring Training.  Newschannel 9's Beau Bagley has your 6pm sports!
