The Philadelphia Phillies are certainly used to being in front of the camera, but what about the guy behind the camera? That man’s name is Dan Stephenson, and since 1982 he has been affectionately known within the Phillies organization as “Video Dan.”
Manager of Video Production for the Phillies for the past 32 years, Stephenson says he loves telling the story of one of America’s most historic baseball teams. The Merchantville, New Jersey native films everything on the field, off the field, and behind the scenes with the Phillies. He has also written and produced more than twenty documentaries and received a Mid-Atlantic Regional Emmy Award for his work.
Even on a bad day when the Phillies lose a game, Stephenson says he still has the greatest job in the world.
