CHASE UTLEY’S HOUSE IN HADDONFIELD NJ
Does Chase Utley live in Haddonfield NJ is a question that arrives on my blog daily.
Philly Inquirer 1/26/10
What is an offseason like in the life of a guy like Utley? A couple trips to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. A move from Southern California, where he was born and raised, to San Francisco, where is wife is from and where they live in the off season. A quick trip to the Cayman Islands for teammate Jimmy Rollins’ wedding.Many people believe it is this house that Chase and Jennifer Utley live in. IT’S NOT, they do not live in NJ. During the baseball season they live in Philadelphia, Pa specifically Center City. BUT The people in this house do thank you for all the Phillies hats, memorabilia, cards and letters, as I know who lives in this house and they have been on PhillyChitChat. Please do not try and sneak in their house for a glimpse of Chase Utley, he doesn’t live here. Lucky for the one fan girl the owner wasn’t armed when they caught her in the garage rumaging thru “Chase Utley’s trash”. So remember no matter how many of your neighbors, friends or relatives tell you that this is Chase Utley’s house or that he lives in Haddonfield he doesn’t.
