Alumni Day

PhilsAlumnilogo

Alumni Day, a new idea in spring training a year ago, is back for a second run.  This Saturday many former Phillies players will be at Bright House Field, a 1:05 p.m. game against the Toronto Blue Jays, who just signed 38-year-old Randy Wolf.  No, Randy won’t be at Alumni Day.

Gates open at 10:30 a.m.  Some of the Alumni will swing into action at 11:30 a.m. until 12:15 p.m.  There will be multiple autograph stations and greeters at the west gate entrances.  Don’t be surprised if an Alumnus driving a golf cart shows up to pick up fans from the parking lot and drive them to the ballpark. That’s in the plans unless the Alumni driver gets lost.

At 12:45 p.m. over 40 Alumni will be introduced on the field, including those former players currently in uniform in the big league and minor league camps.  That group will not appear at autograph stations because of their daily workout schedule.

There’ll be a few more surprises before and during the game.

Please be aware the list of names is subject to change.
