Yes, there will be a rally for the Phillies before they kick off the World Series. Fans can cheer on the team next Wednesday at a noontime rally at City Hall, sponsored by Citizens Bank. But it doesn't look like any players will be there.
Mayor Nutter, the Philly Phanatic and some ball girls will be at the pep rally, according to a release from Citizens Bank. But the team will be in Tampa or Boston -- depending on who wins the American League championship -- readying for the first game of the series.
