Charlie Manuel Signed Autographs at the Granite Run Mall Saturday; He Loves Every One of You

Aug 17, 2013, 6:34 PM EDT

Just one day after being removed as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, Charlie Manuel was back in the front of the fans on Saturday.

Prior to his firing, Manuel had been booked for an autograph signing at the Granite Run Mall, and he showed up on Saturday to honor his commitment.

Asked how it was to see all the fans turn as they did, Manuel replied:

“It’s absolutely amazing. Yeah, it’s great. Good.”

Was it emotional?

“It’s very emotional … everything about it. It’s good to see every one of them. I love everyone of them. And all of them are Phillies fans, and that makes it even better.

How’d it feel not being in the dugout last night?

“I watched [the game] on TV. It was kind of different, but definitely I was pulling for them to win, and I was upset win they didn’t win, of course. As always.”

As always.

Were you at the Granite Run Mall earlier? See or talk to Charlie? Did you ask him what was in his Wawa bag? Let us know below.

    He said in the bag was a contract offer from the Washington Nationals. Go Charlie, be a Phillie Killer!

    I was there and waited two hours to see him! He was gracious and friendly. I’m so sad to see him go.

    I DON’T KNOW IF CHARLIE WILL SEE THIS BUT I WANTED TO TELL HIM HOW MUCH I’LL MISS HIM, HOW MAD I AM THAT HE WAS LET GO-AND CONTACTED THE PHILLIES TO TELL THEM SO-AND THAT I WISH THAT I HAD BEEN AT THE MALL TO SEE HIM IN PERSON. WATCHING THE GAME WON’T BE THE SAME WITHOUT CHARLIE HANGING ON THE RAIL IN THE DUGOUT.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH CHARLIE FOR BEING SUCH A GREAT COACH OF THE PHILLIES. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
    THE DREYERS
    WENDY, SARAH AND MICHAEL
