Down Syndrome Awareness Day at the Philadelphia Phillies Game
Is there anything in the world better than a Sunday afternoon baseball game?
Well, I guess only one thing…
A Sunday afternoon Phillies’ baseball game with your niece and nephew!
And that is exactly what I did yesterday.
What a way to close my weekend out!
Not only did the team win behind a strong outing from pitcher Zack Wheeler, but the game itself was surrounded by a few fun festivities as well!
So needless to say, it was an eventful day that was filled with a ton of fun!
Plus, it was a beautiful day for baseball with the first pitch coming a little after 12 o’clock!
It was a little chilly, but that was all right since I was able to wear my Jason Kelce and Phillie Phanatic sweatshirt in honor of the Phanatic’s birthday!
Also, before the game and all the on-field pregame festivities started, I made an appearance on my good buddy’s radio show!
John Brazer, who many of you know as the director of fun and games for the Phillies, hosts a Phillies pregame show on 1490am WBCB!
WBCB is actually owned by Merrill Reese!
I appeared on the show with former Phillies pitcher, Tommy Greene!
Plus, right before I was on, the oldest friend of the Phillie Phanatic, Dave Raymond, made an appearance on the show as well to reminisce about some old memories with the Phanatic.
Overall, it was an awesome day, but I expected nothing less than an awesome getting to hang out with Lily and Nate!
