There were many highlights to Phillies Alumni Weekend over the past few days. Mike Lieberthal getting inducted into the Wall of Fame and Larry Andersen, Sarge Matthews, Von Hayes, and a few others singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" were both certainly up there -- especially with L.A. wondering on air afterwards (paraphrased), "why do we sing 'take me out to the ball game' when we're already here?"

But the clear highlight of the festivities had to be legendary Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt tagging along on the Phanatic's heavy duty hot dog cannon and firing encased meat into the crowd.

If you haven't seen it, we highly recommend this documentary on the impressive hot dog cannon the Phanatic employs.
