Phillies Irish Heritage Night 2012
Let’s start with this welcome bit of news: The Phillies beat the Rockies 7-2.
On a steamy summer night when Irish Thunder Pipes and Drums, Philadelphia’s Mary From Dungloe Meghan Davis, Irish tenor Paul Byrom, and dozens of Irish dancers started the ball rolling in the pregame festivities, you can only attribute the Phillies’ unusual good fortune that night to the luck of the Irish.
(Maybe the fact that 2012 St. Patrick’s Day grand marshal and labor leader John “Johnny Doc” Dougherty tossed the first pitch had something to do with the Fightins’ good kharma, too.)
Would that it could be Phillies Irish Heritage Night every game through the end of the season. And the post-season, of course.
Sadly, it is only Irish Heritage night at Citizens Bank Park once a season. But we made the most of it. Check out our photos to see how much fun we had!
