Now up for the Phils, number 42 ... the whole team!

Now this will be fun, just got a news flash about 45 minutes ago that the entire Phillies team will wear number '42' in honor of Jackie Robinson this Sunday at Citizens Bank Park. For that matter, the Phils PR dept should go into high gear and give all the fans entering the park that day a free number '42' shirt for themselves! Talk about a marketing idea, that would go over big for all. I know I should be in the Public Relations dept at the Phils instead of what I do for a living! :)

Well, it should be interesting on Sunday especially since the forecast is for rain. I have to side in with some other baseball writers that have called for the commish of baseball to release the number 42 that all teams in the MLB had to retire, be given back to the players to wear to further honor Jackie by actually wearing the number. We'll see how this progresses. I'll have my voice back soon, so look for another audio post real soon.

As I write this, the Phils are ahead 5-2 in the 9th, I think they are well on our way to the second victory of the season!
