PAL and the Phillies – A Great Team


Police Commissioner Ramsey and PAL youngster prepare to throw the opening pitch

On August 7, 2013, PAL celebrated the 35th anniversary of PAL Night at the Phillies. Nearly 200 PAL youngsters and their officers were in attendance to watch the Phillies take on the Chicago Cubs, and one lucky PAL member even took the mound to throw out the opening pitch alongside Philadelphia  Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey.

Media players and sponsors went head-to-head during a pre-game softball match. Some of Philadelphia’s most revered television and print stars took on popular radio hosts and bloggers. The Radio/Web team was excited to reclaim their victorious title after last year’s tie, and a fun time was had by all.

Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard was honored for his commitment to the City of Philadelphia and for his work in the community with PAL. PAL officials, sponsors and youngsters stood by as a special 35th Anniversary PAL Night cake, courtesy of Tastykake, was unveiled, followed by a formal on-field check presentation. Guests then moved to designated suites to enjoy the game, and watched PAL youngsters dance on the dugout during the 7th inning stretch.

PAL thanks The Ron Krancer Family, H. Chase and Ana Maria Lenfest Foundation, Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter NECA/IBEW Local Union 98, Sugarhouse Casino, Tasty Baking Company, Harvey and Sylvia Nisenbaum and all suite sponsors for their continued support of this signature PAL event.
