At the Ballpark: Tonight is 1980s Retro Night at the ballpark and both teams will be wearing 1984-style throw-back uniforms. (Yes, I'm very excited about this.) On Sunday, all kids receive a Chase Utley Fathead Jr., which I believe is one of those giant removable sticker things that kids hang on their walls these days.
