Favorite Shane Moments
Fans have offered their favorite Shane Victorino moments:
“OMG, the ultimate Shane moment came last season when he led his team to help the grounds crew of the Colorado Rockies during a sudden storm. His infectious sense of fun and his great-guy attitude brought out the best in the team as they literally weathered the storm to hold down the tarp. (I might add that all this occurred while the home team stayed dry below.)
“My second favorite moment also came last year when Shane ran into the stands past first base to catch a fly ball. So focused on the ball, he did a header and landed in the stands. What a great attitude. That’s when I knew he would be my favorite!”
“One of my favorite Shane Victorino moments came in 2005, when I went to Moosic to see the Red Barons play. Victorino hit a home run in both games I saw and made a leaping catch at the centerfield wall. He also was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. When I got home, my dad asked me if I saw any prospective Phillies. I told him Victorino would be up in September and would be a factor down the stretch. He did a great job that season, mostly pinch-hitting, including. “
Thanks for these moments. Feel free to send me more.

Yesterday, an estimated crowd between 6,500 and 7,000 showed up in the Capitol Building in Harrisburg. Three championship trophies were on display in the rotunda, World Series (Phillies), Stanley Cup (Pittsburgh Penguins) and Super Bowl Trophy (Pittsburgh Steelers).
The crowd was believed to be the largest ever in the Capitol Building for one event or display.
Pretty cool that Pennsylvania can boost of having three world champions.
Believe it or not
On Monday night, Raul Ibanez played left field for the Reading Phillies in a rehab appearance and Kyle Drabek was on the mound. On August 16, 1997, Ibanez got his first big league hit off Doug Drabek, Kyle’s dad.
