Philly fans are not normally known for their hospitality when it comes to welcoming the opposition into Citizens Bank Park. Players wearing the wrong colors while between the white lines can be made to feel downright uncomfortable, thanks to the voracious home crowd who enjoy very few things as much as sinking their teeth into an opposing team’s outfielder.
I mean, as long as that opposing outfielder isn’t Logan Morrison.
The Florida Marlins left fielder, known not only for his bat, but also for his tenacious tweeting (much to the dismay of the Marlins’ brass), has built himself quite a fanbase, several of which are denizens of Delaware County. One such fan got quite a treat on Tuesday night, when he got to meet Morrison up close.
