At the Ballpark:  All fans in attendance will receive a Phillies hat at the game tonight.  Based on the picture accompanying the announcement of the promotion, it looks as if this is a grey Phillies hat being given away?  That's kind of melancholy isn't it?

1985 Topps Appreciation:  In a Scrapbook Sunday post from over five years ago, I wrote about the trade that brought submariner Kent Tekulve from the Pirates to the Phillies on April 20, 1985.  Tekulve has always been a favorite of mine and he'd be a first ballot inductee into The Phillies Room Hall of Fame if and when I ever get the funding to open up a proper museum.
