On Wednesday, May 6th, the duo read one of the Phanatic’s books, “The Phillie Phanatic’s Philadelphia Story.”
Bryce Harper appeared on the live head to toe in Phillies gear and the Phanatic brought his usual shenanigans. He took on the role of a school teacher by doing a page by page analysis, showing the drawings to the screen, and asking questions.
He teased the mascot that he never got an autograph from the Phanatic, but his son’s, Krew, book was personalized with an autograph.
Harper and his wife, Kayla welcomed son Krew last August.
Every Wednesday at 7pm, the Phanatic will go live on the Phillies page for a Phillies centric-storytime. It will feature a special guest each week. Manager Joe Girardi and his wife, Kim, joined him on April 29th.
It was a treat for kids and adults alike. We can’t wait to see who his next guest will be!
