For Philadelphia Phillies' fans, October 31st isn't simply a day to recognize Halloween. Back in 2008, the Phillies were World Series' Champions and October 31st was the day Philadelphia held a parade down Broad Street to honor our team.
Given the Phillies' dismal 2015 season, and that only two of the players, Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz, remain on our team from that 2008 season, I decided to take a stroll down "Memory Lane."
The Phillie Phanatic, baseball's ultimate mascot
Jimmy Rollins, Phillies' Shortstop, and the 2008 World Series trophy
Cole Hamels, Series MVP
An estimated two million Phillies' fans lined Broad Street on October 31st to honor our team
Festivities culminated with a ceremony at Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies
Despite the many ups and downs, through the good times and bad, I'll always love my team!
Have a great week, Everyone!
