It wasn’t the most crowded I’ve ever seen the Vet. With the shadows creeping in, the advantage is tipped to the pitchers.
With the cookie cutter park and the astroturf, this picture looks like it was taken in the 1970’s, not AFTER the turn of the century.
It doesn’t get more hardcore and not glamorous Philadelphia than a cheesesteak at the Vet. (Truth be told, Cheesesteaks are kind of overrated..)
When my dad and I were in Wrigley Field for a game in 1991, we saw slugger Dale Murphy play for the Phillies.
Poor guy. He was the star of so many awful Braves teams in the 1980’s. They dealt him to the Phillies in 1990 and the next year, the Braves went on a post season rampage.
He was there for all the bad times and not the good times.
