Cemetery Phillies tribute
Twin pennants, West Mount Laurel CemeteryThe Phillies won the World Series on Oct. 29, 2008, and within a day or two, team paraphernalia began showing up at headstones in cemeteries around the area. Friends and relatives of deceased Phillies fans, knowing the baseball agonies they’d suffered in life, offered mementos in the hopes that their Phillies spirit could, at last, rest in peace. These two displays were in West Mount Laurel Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, Pa. A Daily News story on this phenomenon is here.
