Patch work For the rest of the season, the Phillies will wear a circular black patch on their right sleeves to honor the late Robin Roberts. And it's not just the players who will don Roberts' No. 36 on their sleeves - everyone from clubhouse personnel to athletic trainers had the patch sewn onto their polo shirts. According to the Baseball Hall of Fame, the first known use of a memorial patch on a baseball uniform was in 1876 when Tom Miller, a catcher for St. Louis, died during the season from a kidney disease.

In the Vet, Phillies general manager Lee Thomas was in his office with the door closed. It all came together late last night when the Phillies announced at a hastily called press conference that they had acquired two-time National League MVP Dale Murphy from the Braves for reliever Jeff Parrett.
