No matter how rough things are going for your favorite baseball team, a walkoff home run from your preeminent slugger is a moment worth celebrating. Especially because those sorts of heroics are pretty rare these days in South Philadelphia. Ryan Howard was a paltry 2-20 vs. LHP at Citizens Bank Park this season prior to his walkoff homer on Wednesday, according to BoopStats.
Phils closer Jonathan Papelbon and Carlos Ruiz thought it a swing worth celebrating too. And not all ballplayers celebrate equally as you can see in the above photos.
And when you watch the celebration video below, I don't think you could find a happier baseball player than Chooch.
The Phillies are remarkably only 4 games back in the NL East. I wouldn't mind watching Carlos Ruiz and company have a little more fun this season.
