PHILADELPHIA -- It's not every day one gets to see a Hall of Fame third baseman shoot hot dogs into the stands or a former All-Star announce the starting lineups before a game.
But those are the types of things Phillies fans were treated to during the team's series finale against the Cardinals on Sunday, the final day of Phillies Alumni Weekend at Citizens Bank Park.
Following Friday's induction of Mike Lieberthal onto the Wall of Fame and Saturday's pregame ceremonies involving a couple dozen former Phillies, many of the former players stuck around for Sunday's game, participating in a variety of ways.
A few innings after John Kruk announced the starting lineups Sunday, Dick Allen, Kevin Stocker and Tony Taylor changed the bases after the third inning. Darren Daulton and Mitch Williams sang "Happy Birthday" to a fan in between the fourth and fifth innings and Mike Schmidt assisted the Phillie Phanatic in shooting hot dogs into the seats. And last but not least, a group of eight former Phillies, including Larry Andersen, Gary Matthews, Ricky Jordan and Von Hayes, sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" on the field during the seventh-inning stretch.
