AT 91, Raymond DiCrescenzo is nothing if not intrepid.
DiCrescenzo and his Army comrades endured bombing almost every night when they served in the Quartermaster Corps at ports in Africa and Italy during World War II, he says.
He never suffered a scratch.
But as he was leaving Citizens Bank Park Tuesday night, DiCrescenzo was struck by a hit-and-run driver. Luck was with him and he suffered only a head cut when the vehicle, a pickup truck, knocked him down.
A lifelong Phillies fan and season-ticket holder, DiCrescenzo didn't let a little thing like a brush with serious injury - or worse - stop him from returning to the ballpark for another game last night.
