The Phillies are hitting the streets and giving free tickets to random fans

The Philadelphia Phillies aren't having the best spring thus far — there have been injuries and conflicts and infections. At least the Phillies marketing department seems to have picked a winner with its latest campaign.

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.
