PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — They’re more often heard than seen but some big-time Phillies fans are getting a very big honor. Oscar Alvarado and Brett MacMinn, the founders of the Phandemic Krew are being featured on a bobblehead.
“Oscar and I are truly honored to be recognized,” said Brett MacMinn, on behalf of the Phandemic Krew. “As long as the Phillies are playing, we’ll be out here at Citizens Bank Park – and next year we’ll keep the ‘Krew’ going inside the ballpark. We would like to give special thanks to Michael and Francie Fields for making the Phandemic Krew bobblehead possible so money can continue to be raised for Phillies Charities. We would also like to thank the team and the countless fans for all their love and support.”
The Krew has gathered outside the ballpark this season, blasting air horns and cheering the team on, even if no fans are allowed inside.
The bobbleheads cost $60 and will be available for presale starting Friday at the New Era Phillies Team Store at Citizens Bank Park. The bobblehead will also be available for purchase at FOCO.com
Proceeds go to Phillies charities.
