Pat Burrell said goodbye to Philly on Friday


Missed this over the weekend, but Pat the Bat said goodbye to Philadelphia on Saturday, throwing out the first pitch a day after officially retiring. has a nice story about his farewell.  Burrell was clearly appreciative of the honor. And even got misty when he saw the granddaughters of the late John Vukovich there to greet him.  And the reception from the fans was warm too.  I bet even these guys cheered for him.
