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.
