PHILS TRIBUTE TO LATE, GREAT DAVE MONTGOMERY — BY CHASE UTLEY!

By Sam Bush

The Phils beat the Mets last night to take over first place.

But before that they kicked off Wall of Fame Weekend, honoring former executive David Montgomery before inducting Manny Trillo into the Wall of Fame tonight. The Phillies will then retire Roy Halladay’s number on Sunday, while also unveiling a No. 34 statue on the Third Base Plaza that will stand permanently alongside Dick Allen’s No. 15 statue.

Montgomery was celebrated with a special on-field tribute featuring his family and former players.

The former president and CEO spent nearly 50 years in the Phillies’ organization and posthumously received the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Buck O’Neil Lifetime Achievement Award last month.
