Maybe Father's Day?
Dad better burn with devotion for the Fightin's. Otherwise, it might make him steam.
A "cool" item would be the new "individual beer floatie," Winkey says.
"You put your can of beverage of choice in this inflatable ring, I imagine, Phillies-branded, and it would float in the pool next to you," Winkey said.
Phillies "swimmies" - inflatable armbands for kids to use in pools - could also surface, but closer to summer.
Before play resumes in early April at the park, however, almost all of the following should be found:
A singing rally monkey. A tire cover. A truck-hitch cover. Salt-and-pepper shakers in the likeness of the Phillies garden gnome - and his wife. Phillies vs. Mets Connect Four (a followup to Phillies vs. Mets checkers). More types of handbags. More jewelry. Umbrellas. A Phillies Rubik's Cube.
Plus a "retro" garden gnome.
"It's a full-size garden gnome in a 1980s uniform," Winkey said.
Fans might find some of these in other outlets, too.
"They're certainly not all exclusive," Winkey said.
Also new, but not a novelty item, is the lightweight "Flex Fit" batting practice cap, with "high-tech mesh" for "vapor management."
"It will wick the moisture off your head," Winkey said.
Players will wear these hats during spring-training games, and in batting practice during the regular season, he said.
The Majestic Clubhouse Store is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday year-round.
