August 13, 2010 at 6:48 AM (PT)
CBS RADIO Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA is partnering with the PHILADELPHIA Department of Parks and Recreation for a "Play Day" on MONDAY (8/16). The free event will offer traditional kids' games for adults, with competitions for men and women in softball, H-O-R-S-E, punt, pass and kick, home run derby, and many more.
Midday hosts ANTHONY GARGANO and GLEN MACNOW will broadcast live from the event at FDR PARK in SOUTH PHILADELPHIA (across the street from the city's sports complex), and afternooners HOWARD ESKIN and IKE REESE will broadcast live from the "after party" 3-7p (ET) from CHICKIE'S AND PETE'S sports bar, a few blocks north of the park. PHILLIES catcher CARLOS RUIZ, whose ninth-inning walkoff double completed THURSDAY night's PHILLIES comeback to beat the LOS ANGELES DODGERS, will appear at the after-party in the 5p hour.
