The Philadelphia Phillies have had a hot start to their offseason, making a huge splash by signing Trea Turner to a 11-year $300 million contract. That wasn't the Phillies only move, though, and they still don't seem done for this offseason.

Regardless of who is on the field in Philadelphia next season, the team is already making some exciting and unconventional plans for promotions at games in 2023.

The Phillies announced on Thursday that following the July 1 game against the Washington Nationals there will be a postgame concert, featuring none other than Diesel aka Shaquile O'Neal.

While Shaq is now known as kind of a do-it-all celebrity, music has never really been something he's been applauded for. We know he's had performances in the past and some memorable rap verses and lyrics, maybe not for the best reasons, but this might be a new one for Shaq.

Who knows what kind of concert this will be, or how many people will stick around for it, but if you're already in the stadium and got nothing else to do, you might as well enjoy Shaq performing on a baseball field. Not often you get the chance to do that.
