PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A Phillies “rally trolley” rolled through the street of center city and South Philadelphia this afternoon, surprising passersby and revving up baseball fans for tonight’s deciding game five of the National League Division Series (see related story).

On board were the Phillie Phanatic, the Phillies’ ball girls, and former players including Tommy Greene, Greg Luzinski (below), and Gary Matthews.

“It will be a sea of red,” said Matthews, “and I can’t wait for the game.  I’ve been on the bandwagon with them the whole year.  Go Phils!”

The trolley, with a police escort, made its way through city streets for about and hour and a half as beads, bracelets, cheer cards, and rally towels were tossed to pedestrians.
