After an emotional day over at the NovaCare Complex, newly retired No. 20, Brian Dawkins, got an amazing ovation prior to the Phillies victory over the Cubs on Saturday night. B-Dawk walked out to the mound rocking a Jimmy Rollins Phillies jersey and delivered the ceremonial first pitch of the game to J-Roll, the longest tenured active Philadelphia athlete. As T-Mac says in the below video, Dawkins got one heck of a welcome from the fans at Citizens Bank Park.

Not the smoothest delivery from Weapon X but if there’s a guy in this town that can get away with it, it’s the greatest Eagle of the past few decades. [video below]
