No Phillies fans in the stadium this year, which might have been a good thing, because it was bad enough watching the bullpen on television. Imagine seeing that in person.
The Phandemic Krew carried the torch for those of us watching from home, gathering nightly outside of Ashburn Alley to cheer on the Phillies and annoy the tissue-soft New York Yankees in the process.
Now the Krew is being honored with their very own limited-edition bobblehead doll, which looks like this:
It’s $60 and available for preorder right now at this link. A portion of the proceeds will be given to Phillies Charities, which annually raises a few million dollars in grants for local organizations.
Here’s a blurb from the press release:
Oscar Alvarado and Brett MacMinn, the founders of the Phandemic Krew (named after the pandemic and the son of right fielder Bryce Harper), are featured in the hand-crafted and hand-painted bobble, where their signature stance for every game is imitated: perched on a ladder and with an air horn, cheering on the Phillies outside the ballpark gates. This special bobble was commissioned and paid for by Francie and Michael Fields (daughter and son-in-law of Phillies Managing Partner John Middleton).
