Happy Memorial Day! May your day be filled with family, baseball, hamburgers and Brandon Duckworth.
Wearing #56 (in 2001 and 2002) and #31 (in 2003), Brandon pitched in 65 games for the Phils, mostly as a starter, and had an overall record of 15-18. In his short time in Philly, Brandon developed a fan group at Veterans Stadium - The Duck Pond.
Brandon was traded to the Houston Astros in November 2003 in the Billy Wagner deal. He's since bounced from the Astros to the Pirates to the Royals, and he's currently pitching with the Royals' AAA team in Omaha.
