The Phillies bullpen joined in the fun of celebrating Rhys Hoskins' home run
From the very start of the 2019 season, the Phillies have brought their "A" game when it comes to celebrations. They have an elaborate and deeply personalized array of handshakes and a wave to the dugout after doubles that's so fun that kids are joining in at home.
On Friday night, the bullpen decided to get in on the action. After Rhys Hoskins hit a three-run home run to give the Phillies a lead in the sixth inning, the relief corps celebrated right along with the slugger ... from a couple hundred feet away.

The Phillies' commitment to showing their excitement for hitting is truly admirable. At the rate these celebrations are catching on, we wouldn't be shocked if the grounds crew is participating by the end of the summer.
