Phillies | Standing Ovation for McGraw
The AP's Rob Maaddi reports retired RP Tug McGraw, who previously pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets, received a thunderous standing ovation at Veterans Stadium on Thursday, 3 July, while participating in a between-innings ritual marking the last days of Veterans Stadium. After the top of the sixth concluded, he came on the field to update a sign in right field indicating how many games are left at the stadium. His appearance prompted an ovation from both the fans and players. McGraw is still recovering from surgery to remove a malignant brain tumor. The Phillies are moving into a new stadium next season.
