40 Years Ago, the Pain Vanished and Phillies Fans Finally Celebrated

Phillies Pitching Coach Bryan Price Retires

Their latest gem came Monday. When you head to the team's official website, IronPigsbaseball.com, the first thing that pops up is a graphic promoting Thursday's home game against Rochester. What made it so great? They highlighted the opposing pitcher, which happens to be 44-year-old veteran Bartolo Colon.

Lehigh Valley wanted to make sure fans knew "Big Sexy" would be taking the Coca-Cola Park mound.

The 5-foot-11, 285-pounder is a presence out there, alright.

The Phillies have seen him plenty over his long career. The IronPigs will get him Thursday night.

"Big Sexy" should have a big challenge against Lehigh Valley, which is 55-35 and boasts a stacked lineup.

This would be a fun game to go to if you're a Phillies fan.
