Phanatic, PHS and U.C. Green Plant "Phillies Home Runs for Trees"

Sixty Phillies' player-tagged trees - donated through the "Phillies Home Runs for Trees" program supported by Philadelphia Gas Works - were planted in University City by volunteers from U.C. Green, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and Philadelphia Gas Works. The Phillie Phanatic and Phillies Ballgirls helped distribute Phillies-tagged trees and equipment at the U.C. Green volunteer kick-off at Malcolm X Park, before joining the volunteer team at the tree planting site on Larchwood Avenue. Photos by Miles Kennedy/Philadelphia Phillies
