Rogers Centre - Toronto, Ontario

Phillies 15-16, 5th Place in the N.L. East, 2 1/2 games behind the Braves
Blue Jays 16-17, Tied for 3rd Place in the A.L. East, 1 1/2 games behind the Orioles and Yankees

At the Ballpark:  There's not a darn thing going on at the stadium formerly known as the SkyDome for these two games . . . other than some so-so baseball between the Jays and Phils.

1988 Topps Appreciation:  This is the coveted Rob Ducey rookie card from the 1988 Topps set.  Iback in a June 2009 post.  Despite his three years with the club, I only have six Ducey Phillies cards in my collection.  Three of those cards come from Phillies team-issued sets, one of the cards is from the 2001 Topps set and the other two cards are from the seldom seen and best forgotten 2000 Impact and 2001 MLB Showdown sets.
first wrote about Ducey and his strange 2000 season
