The ink is barely dry on his walking papers as the Phillies manager, but the team is honoring Charlie Manuel anyway. They’re putting him on their Wall of Fame:
“It is only fitting that Charlie become the newest member of our Wall of Fame,” said Phillies President David Montgomery. “His contributions to our club, his unparalleled connection with our fans, and his overall passion and love of the game made the decision an easy one. He has left an indelible mark on Phillies history and he deserves this honor.”
It’s fitting. Dude brought the team a championship and a lot of good baseball to Philly. Glad to see that there isn’t any bad blood after the way things ended.
