The Phillie Phanatic is a lot like Chase Utley. He brings his A-game to the field every single night. The only difference? The Phanatic has been doing it for decades.
The Big Green Guy had another action-packed weekend down at Citizens Bank Park as the team hosted the Arizona Diamondbacks and actually completed a rare home series victory.
Perhaps the best moment of the weekend was when he helped surprise a little boy by welcoming his mother home from being deployed with the U.S. Air Force in Asia. A real solid move by the Phanatic to pull some of his strings in the government.
He also challenged Martin Prado to a pushup contest. Did you know that the Phanatic is so strong he can do one-arm pushups?
And of course Friday night was Christmas in July and Santa was welcomed to the Ball Park. Thankfully the temps were well into the 80s so any precipitation would not be in frozen form.
If you thought the Phanatic could scare little kids at the game, take a look at this frightening Christmas Mouse:
