On Sunday, the team started something it's calling Random Acts of Phandom, where Phillies reps hit the street looking for random fans to award with free tickets.
From the team's press release:
RandomPhandom is five days of Phillies fun, as fans wearing red and showing their Phillies spirit will randomly be awarded for their acts of phandom! A Phillies #RandomPhandom team will be traveling all around the region, from Center City to Chestnut Hill, Pa. to Haddonfield, NJ and New Hope, Pa., and lots more locations. Follow @Phillies on Twitter using #RandomPhandom for more info.
The tangible results of this are already starting to spread online. A Redditor shared this picture, saying his sister had a Phillies bumper sticker on her car and found this on her windshield:
Another Redditor, a college student at West Chester University, was spotted wearing his Phillies gear and got a free ticket voucher and a free cap. He shared this photo:
Well done, Phillies. It's always nice when, in this huge billion-dollar business of baseball, good things trickle down to the fans.
