Ahead of what is expected to be Howard’s final series with the Phillies (Friday, September 30th to Sunday, October 2nd at Citizens Bank Park vs. the NY Mets), some of Howard’s teammates and coaches called into SportsRadio 94WIP to discuss the legacy of the 36-year-old first baseman.

“Obviously a lot of people know statiscally how impactful Ryan Howard was. And he was that guy who was the ultimate game changer in one of the best offensive lineups this game has ever seen. He was also a guy, for me, remained very humble in that clubhouse and that’s a pretty difficult thing to do I think for a lot of people.

“And I just think he was able to kind of be one of those team guys who never put himself ahead of the team despite his status. So, he was a great guy in the clubhouse, but really just the absolute game changer…nobody made opposing pitchers just afraid to come into games like Ryan Howard did.”
