SARAH CARMEL MCCOLLUM of Delaware County, 13 months old, was "born a Phillies fan right before the World Series last year," her mom Karen said, adding that she's expecting the newest McCollum in November.
Karen's husband, Brian McCollum, senses a pattern here. "I wonder: Will the Phillies keep winning if we keep having children?" Brian asked Broad Street Billy.
Billy replied: "Yes, Brian, they will. So keep having kids. It's called being a team player."
Brian, who has season tickets, went to the first two home World Series games with his brother Michael last year.
"I remember being on top of the world," Brian said. "My first child had just been born, and each night was so exciting - watching the Phillies win and knowing I was going home to my little girl."
