Tim was asked to deliver the ceremonial game ball to the pitcher’s mound. When he reached the mound, Tim pulled some of his father’s ashes from his pocket and scattered them on the dirt. Tug pitched for the Phillies and helped the team win its last World Series in 1980. Current Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer was touched by Tim’s gesture to his father. “It’s something where he has his heart in this organization,” Moyer told csnphilly.com. “I’m sure he thought it was going to be good luck or something like that and it turned out that it probably was.” Philadelphia won the game 5–4.
