It’s unclear how Mac got his letter to Utley, since he tried going through Major League Baseball, Utley’s lawyer and Utley’s mom. But in any case, Utley finally responded.
The veteran infielder writes:
I feel like I can call you Mac because you called me Chase. Sorry it took me five years to write you back, but I’m really busy playing a lot of baseball for the Phillies. Thank you for the compliment on my hair. It’s my fourth favorite thing after baseball, running fast, and my dad. I’m sorry your dad doesn't like you. Maybe you could become a better son. Meeting you and having a game of catch sounds like a lot of fun, but like I said, I’m really busy playing a lot of baseball for the Phillies.
I hope you have a good life. Fans like you make my life a “grand slam.”
Your good friend,
'Oh shit! There's stickers!"
