Pat Burrell Returns to Philly on May 19: A City Braces

This is pretty good. Watch this video of a handful of Phillies fans fretting over the return of Pat the Bat for... interesting reasons.

Pat Burrell will return to Philadelphia on May 19th to throw out the first pitch before his former team takes on the Boston Red Sox. Burrell will sign a one-day contract with the Phillies and be honored in front of the roughly 45,000 or so fans in attendance. The Machine will also be signing autographs in the Hall of Fame club that day.

According to the below video, he may be intimately familiar with a couple thousand of those in attendance. It’s pretty damn funny. [video below]
