Pearl Jam shouts out to the Phillies

Dedications to Eddie Vedder's favorite players.

Pearl Jam shouts out to the Phillies

In the middle of Wednesday’s Pearl Jam show at the Spectrum, singer Eddie Vedder called out: “I wonder what the score is.”

On cue, a boxing-style ring-card girl bopped onto the stage with a giant scorecard reading, “Phillies 1, Yankees 0.” She kept the crowd updated through the game/show.

Vedder dedicated “Wishlist” to his “close personal friend, Raul Ibanez,” “Given to Fly” to Shane Victorino, and “Save You” to Brad Lidge.

The band will compete with the Phillies again Saturday when they play the final show ever at the Spectrum.
