Inquirer Letters Extra: Memorable day in the bleachers

Every single person we encountered during a visit to the Phillies ballpark played a role in making our son's birthday a day he'll always remember.

Despite Philadelphia's reputation for being tough on its sports teams, at least one team - even with its rocky start this year - is very good to fans, nonetheless.

My wife and I had the joy of spending our son's ninth birthday with him at Citizens Bank Park, and every single person we encountered played a role in making his day one he'll always remember.

From the parking attendants to the superstar-players themselves, every person who worked for the home team was classy and made my son feel special.

This sort of thing makes us root, root, root for the Phils.
