Just one day after being removed as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, Charlie Manuel was back in the front of the fans on Saturday.
Prior to his firing, Manuel had been booked for an autograph signing at the Granite Run Mall, and he showed up on Saturday to honor his commitment.
Asked how it was to see all the fans turn as they did, Manuel replied:
"It's absolutely amazing. Yeah, it's great. Good."
Was it emotional?
"It's very emotional ... everything about it. It's good to see every one of them. I love everyone of them. And all of them are Phillies fans, and that makes it even better.
How'd it feel not being in the dugout last night?
"I watched [the game] on TV. It was kind of different, but definitely I was pulling for them to win, and I was upset win they didn't win, of course. As always."
