PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Last time Mike Schmidt and George Brett were together in a ballpark in Philadelphia, they were joined by 65,000 fans and riot police riding horses.
It was Game 6 of the 1980 World Series at old Veterans Stadium. Tug McGraw pumped a fastball past Willie Wilson, leaped off the mound and waited for Schmidt to run in from third base to jump in his arms and kick off a wild celebration.
The Phillies beat the Royals to secure their first world championship in their 106th season. Brett watched from the dugout.
On Friday, the two Hall of Famers will throw out the first pitch when the Phillies open their home schedule against Kansas City in a rare interleague matchup in April.
