1986 - Creepy Phillies Fans

| | Comments (2)

Today's Classic Television Friday is actually a series of commercials the Phillies apparently thought would bring fans to the Vet in 1986. The Fightins drew 1,933,335 fans to Veterans Stadium that year, good for fourth in the league, so it looks like it worked.

Times must have been tough then in Philadelphia; one of the promos is for a giveaway of a "free lunch" to kids. What, no Tom Herr glove? (I actually received this at a Phillies game once.)

Oh, also, Mike Schmidt OPS+'ed 152 and won the MVP. So that probably helped fill the place, too.
