Kramer catches up with Utley, throws out first pitch

Chase Utley still rules. But Julie Kramer isn’t bad, either. She threw a strike to home plate for her ceremonial first pitch before the Phillies opened their 2015 season Monday at Citizens Bank Park. Kramer, who is from Tabernacle, N.J., is a cancer survivor who appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in December, where she discussed her inspiring battle with Stage 4 synovial sarcoma.
