The Eagles greeted Ryan Howard by playing 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame'

Thanks to Mike Trout, the Eagles' home of Lincoln Financial Field has become a prime venue for the intersection of baseball and football. For Sunday's matchup against the Bears, former Phillie Ryan Howard got in on the action as he paid a visit to his old stomping grounds.

The Eagles and their fans were not about to let Howard's presence go unacknowledged. During the third quarter, the stadium greeted him by singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

Perhaps for that moment, Howard thought he was across the street in red pinstripes at Citizens Bank Park. For an encore, the Eagles treated Howard and the rest of their fans to a classic dance number.

Just as Howard did 382 times as a Phillie, they knocked it out of the park.
