Series Baseball Game
Phillies have become the winner of the 2008 World Series
defeating the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 4 games to 1. Fans
went wild over the rain delayed game that was stopped
Monday night because of the downpour.
Pedro Feliz singled home
the go-ahead run in the seventh and Lidge closed out his
perfect season to deliver the World Series title
Philadelphia have longed for. Cole Hamels won the MVP
award for the 2008 World Series. He was presented with a
2010 Chevy Camaro.
Fans watched the historic game
while bundled in parkas and blankets seeing the Philadelphia
Phillies claim their first major sports championship in 25
It was definitely the most
bizarre circumstances in baseball history, a best-of-seven
series turned into a best-of-3˝ stare down when the game resumed
in the bottom of the sixth inning tied at 2.
Two Devil Rays relievers warmed
up to start the game, and then a pinch-hitter before a single
pitch. "God Bless America" was sung rather than the national
anthem and the seventh-inning stretch came fast.
This year’s World Series
suffered from low television ratings, and less than fabulous
teams playing in the fall classic. Even the kids got to watch it
all, before their bedtime.
