Philadelphia fans have a rivalry with the rest of the country/world, but last night was pretty awesome. When Tony Gwynn Jr. came up to bat, the entire crowd gave him a standing ovation after the passing of his legendary (and from all accounts extremely friendly) dad. I may not like you Philly, but Goddamn it I respect you (for one night only).
Also, great work by the umpire and Saltalamacchia to clean the plate and have a meeting at the mound to let the ovation last longer. Class acts for a fallen class act. Good stuff
PS- This clip of Gwynn Jr. going back and forth with a fan a few years ago was pretty terrific.
