For each home run the team hits this season, the organization hopes to plant a tree. Entering Monday's game against the Cubs, that total stood at 14.
The initiative is part of PHS' Plant One Million program, a tree-planting campaign in 13 counties in southeastern Pennsylvania and parts of New Jersey and Delaware. For each home run hit by a Phillies player, PHS and its partners will plant a tree in locations like local parks, urban settings and watershed areas.
