Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley received a standing ovation in Philadelphia on Monday night. It was his first at bat in Philly since he announced he would be retiring at the end of the season.
Utley’s still a legend in Philly and his 50 second standing ovation proves that. If he ever wants to get back into the game, Philadelphia is the place for him to do so.
Now batting, number twenty-six, second baseman, Chase Utley!
A tremendous ovation for a tremendous athlete.
