Brandon Phillips recently opened up to his fans via Facebook and asked if they had any questions for him. Many answered and now BP will take time each week to answer those fan questions.

Debra Ballew Barker from Cleves, Ohio had this question:

Here is BP’s response to Debra’s question:

“The reason I got number 4 was because of my sister. My sister was wearing that in high school. I was number 7 my whole career until I got traded to the Cincinnati Reds. Bucky Dent had number 7, and he was going to give it to me. I said ‘You know what Bucky? This is a new beginning for me. I want to change my life. I’m gonna start all over. I want to come out here and have a different career and start all over.’

“And as you know, I said ‘Hey [Porsha], I’m gonna get number 4 because of you’ she was all ‘Aww, that’s so sweet!’ So the reason I got number 4, one of the main reasons I got number 4, was because of my sister.”
