Players were back in uniform and worked out at Citizens Bank Park for nearly a couple of hours this afternoon. 

Kyle Kendrick, Greg Golson, Mike Cervenak and Andy Tracy, all of whom went to the Florida Instructional League in Clearwater, FL, to keep their skills fresh, have rejoined the team.

The Phillies have until 10 a.m. on Tuesday to file their World Series roster with MLB.

The team will work out again on Saturday afternoon and then have a day off on Sunday.

Funeral Service
Charlie Manuel’s mother, June, was laid to rest this morning in Buena Vista, Va.  Among those attending the services were David Montgomery, Pat Gillick, Ruben Amaro Jr., Mike Arbuckle and Greg Casterioto.

Monday Schedule
The Phillies will leave for Boston or Tampa Bay mid-day on Monday.

Should the Rays win that series, Charlie hopes to have the team work out on the artificial turf at Tropicana Field twice, after arriving on Monday and again on Tuesday. 

If the team is going to Boston, a workout will be held at Fenway Park on Tuesday.  MLB requires that both teams work out prior to Games 1 and 3.

World Series tickets and Phillies merchandise are the hot items right now.  People are coming out of hibernation seeking tickets.  Unfortunately, the cupboard is bare.  One fan offered to trade 1964 World Series tickets for 2008 tickets.  No, we didn’t win it in 1964 but we did print tickets because we thought we were going to be the NL champs.

National League Champion Phillies t-shirts and caps are available at the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park; Monday-Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Official merchandise can also be purchased online at or by calling 1-877-GO PHILS if you live in Pocatello, ID, and can’t drive to Philly.

How’s that for a friendly commercial?

A Reminder
You can catch more Phillies fever views from two other blogs on this site, Shane Victorino and the Phillies Ballgirls.
