At the Ballpark: It's a Dollar Dog night tonight, but I'm particularly excited about Friday night's game. Friday night is 1970s Retro Night and the Phillies will turn back the clock to 1976 with retro uniforms and pillbox caps. All fans will also receive a commemorative Phillies retro print.
On Saturday, all kids will receive an Aaron Nola t-shirt and all fans will receive Phillies retro socks on Sunday afternoon. Quite a good promotional schedule for this weekend series with the Brewers.

Only Money went on to have success in Milwaukee, making four All-Star teams and hitting 134 home runs in his 11 seasons with the Brewers. Champion went 22-19 from 1973 to 1976 and Vuk hit .149 in parts of two seasons with the Brewers.
On the flip side, Lonborg was the key to the deal for the Phillies. He helped solidify a pitching rotation that went to the postseason three years in a row from 1976 to 1978. Lonborg won 17 games in 1974 and was an 18-game winner in 1976. Brett lasted just one season in Philly (13-9, 3.44 ERA in 31 games) before getting dealt to the Pirates for Dave Cash.
Sanders received a card in the 1973 Topps set with the Phillies, but the team kept him only a month before flipping him to the Twins in the Cesar Tovar deal. Stephenson never played for the Phils.
