2011 Phillies Phestival

The 2011 Phillies Phestival to benefit the ALS Association raised $893,033 this year with a record crowd of 6,800 fans.  The Phestival included player autographs, games, prizes, grab bags and photo opportunities.

Here are a few photos I snapped while getting autographs.  Here is Ryan Howard, Cliff Lee, Chase Utley and Antonio Bastardo:

Before the autographs began, the players wandered around the field meeting the event sponsors and their families.  Something odd I noted was that many Phillies players were wearing plaid shirts, in various colors.  It made me wonder, was this a planned theme, a coincidence or is plaid back in style and I am just late getting the news?

So, what do you think?  Weird, right?  Or maybe it is just me ;o)

Anyway, the Phillies did a fine job as usual putting together a great event.  And it is always nice to see an entire team come out on their off-day to support a worthy cause.

But tonight, it is back to baseball.  The Phillies will face the Marlins at 7:05pm.

Here is the full Photo Album from the Phestival.  Enjoy!

Yes, weird! That is WAY too much plaid in one place. I could maybe understand if it was all the “country boys” (Lee, Oswalt, etc.) but Bastardo? And Romero?? Bizarre.
