The Sixers had the jerseys made up and arranged for them to be sent to the Phillies.

The idea for the gifts came from Sixers PR director Michael Preston.

Preston said the Sixers thought it would a "nice gesture" because of a ticket offer between the two teams for today's Phillies game and tonight's Sixers game.

He said the Sixers wanted "to have our rotation wish the Phillies rotation best of luck this year. We thought it would be fun to outfit their starting five in Sixers jerseys."
