THAT FAMILIAR No. 26 was not on the back of Chase Utley's uniform Tuesday night when he played for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. He was trumped by the mascot.
Ferris, the team's porcine representation, wears No. 26, because, as all you fans of the periodic table of elements know, that is the number for iron. The mascot's name is derived from the Latin name for iron.
Utley wore No. 21.
