Re: Phillies Help With Tarp
Johnny Footstool (from the ORG) sent this to me via PM:
From the Rockies official web site:
" But karma seemed to be on the side of the Phillies on Sunday. As the Rockies' grounds crew struggled to put the tarp on the field with the rain pouring and a heavy wind, the visiting Phillies emerged from the dugout to assist and got a standing ovation from the home crowd. Only LaTroy Hawkins came out to help for the Rockies.
"You never know what can happen," Rockies infielder Jamey Carroll said. "I've been on tarp duty in college and it can whip around, yank you around your shoulders and stuff. After the fact you think what could have happened to one of the guys, they would have got thrown around or something like some of the guys did, you're risking a lot. But again, that was a good thing they did."
The Phils came away unscathed and victorious."
