Phillies Fans Give Chase Utley Standing Ovation
In what could be his final appearance at Citizens Bank Park as a player, Phillies fans gave Chase Utley a 50-second standing ovation before his first at-bat of the night.
"Phillies fans know this is going to be the last chance i'm going to get a chance to play in this ball park," Ultey said in a press conference before the game.
Unless the Dodgers and Phillies meet in the National League playoffs, this would be the final series for Utley in Philadelphia, he went 0-4 in the game that Los Angeles won 7-6.
He spoke about how special it was to be back in Philly, for perhaps the final time.
"It was intense," Utley told reporters after the game. "It was a little emotional, especially that first at-bat. I don't know why it's so nerve-racking that first at-bat, but it really is."
