Eagles Will Give Away LeSean McCoy Bobblehead at Linc Training Camp Practice

Eagles Will Give Away LeSean McCoy Bobblehead at Linc Training Camp Practice

Many fans were quite upset about the team moving training camp from up at Lehigh University to the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. The change meant the thousands and thousands of fans who made the pilgrimage to Lehigh's campus could no longer do so. In an attempt to make up for that loss, the Eagles announced they would make a number of practices open to the public (ticket required) at Lincoln Financial Field.

Tickets for those practices will be available next Tuesday and with that news we learned that the Birds are trying to go a step further to make up for the loss of Lehigh. Young kids who attend the August 11th practice at the Linc will receive a LeSean McCoy mini bobblehead.

MINI-BOBBLEHEAD GIVEAWAYS
DATE:
August 11, 2013
TIME: 12:30 pm
LOCATION:
Lincoln Financial Fiel
The first 10,000 kids entering Lincoln Financial Field ages 12-and-under will receive a LeSean McCoy mini-bobblehead doll, presented by ACME.

Other promos include alumni day with autograph availability, military appreciation day, and a safety day with the fire department.

Union see 4-game winning streak end in shutout loss to Real Salt Lake

Union see 4-game winning streak end in shutout loss to Real Salt Lake

BOX SCORE

SANDY, Utah -- Joao Plata scored his first goal of the season and Real Salt Lake beat the Union, 1-0, on Saturday night to snap Philadelphia's club-record winning streak at four games.

Plata tapped in his goal in the 36th minute after quickly exchanging short passes twice with Jefferson Savarino. Tony Beltran got the play started by saving the ball just before it went over the goal line.

The Union (4-5-5) had a chance to tie it in stoppage time, but goalie Nick Rimando blocked Haris Medunjanin's belt-high free kick and Salt Lake (4-8-2) cleared it after a scramble in front of the net.

Union goalkeeper Andre Blake made seven saves.

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick on Saturday night made his fourth rehab appearance in Triple A during Lehigh Valley's 13-1 rout of the Louisville Bats in Allentown.

Kendrick went 1 for 5 with a run scored and three strikeouts. He also grounded into a double play and left two runners in scoring position.

It was his second rehab game playing third base. He played third during his appearance in the IronPigs' 8-4 loss Thursday to the Indianapolis Indians. He was 0 for 1 in three plate appearances with a run scored and was hit by a pitch twice (see story).

The Phillies' plan for Kendrick was to have him play a minimum four games at Lehigh Valley. He played left field in two games and third base twice. Pete Mackanin said Wednesday that Kendrick would also get a game at first base but he hasn't gotten a game at first yet.

There is a chance Kendrick could be recalled Sunday before the Phillies’ series finale against the Cincinnati Reds depending on how he feels.

Kendrick has been sidelined since April 15 with an oblique strain. In 10 games before the injury, Kendrick went 13 for 39 (.333) with five extra-base hits and four walks while exclusively playing left field.
