Victorino thanks fans with ad in Inquirer and Daily News

Athletes taking out full-page ads in local newspapers to thank fans is nothing new, but it is a small gesture that can go a long way towards leaving some good will as they depart from a city.

Athletes taking out full-page ads in local newspapers to thank fans is nothing new, but it is a small gesture that can go a long way towards leaving some good will as they depart from a city.

Today, Shane Victorino placed ads in both the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News, saying "Mahalo Philadelphia, and to the amazing Phillies fans for all the GREAT memories!"

The Flyin' Hawaiian, as he's known to most fans, was always a class-act during his time in Philadelphia - look no further than his work revitalizing the Nicetown Boys and Girls Club - and continued his goodwill today by thanking the fans.

Mahalo, Shane.
