Shane Victorino received a very warm welcome during the Phillies win over the Red Sox on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia. Perhaps it helped that Shane was not suited up to play due to his current DL stint, so he was not slapping grandslams against our hometown nine, but the Philly faithful in attendance gave him a standing ovation in the fourth inning .
He deserved it for all of his exciting years as a Phillie and the role he played in bringing that wonderful parade down Broad Street to town.
After the jumbotron played a video set to Victorino-favorite Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds," The Flyin' Hawaiian came out of the Sox dugout and acknowledged the crowd for a good fifteen seconds with cap tips, hand waves, and bows.
Prior to the game, Shane said one of the reasons he made the trip to Philly despite being on the disabled list is because he wanted to see the Philly fans. More of what Shane had to say about that here.
