HERE COME THE MEN IN RED: WILL SMITH A BIG HIT IN PHILLY
Published February 27, 1998
In Philadelphia, Jayson Stark calls Will Smith and D.J. Jazzy Jeff wearing Phillies jerseys at the Grammy's on CBS on Wednesday a "dramatic development," adding, "Literally millions of people around the world witnessed this Phillies fashion show." Phillies Promotions Manager John Brazer: "We've given away a bunch of jerseys over the years ... hoping this might happen. ... Now this -- and we had nothing to do with it. It gives me hope, though. I'll be giving away those jerseys to everyone now" (PHILA. INQUIRER, 2/27). NEW KID IN TOWN: Phillies President Dave Montgomery is profiled by Rich Hofmann in the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS. Hofmann, comparing Montgomery to former team President Bill Giles: "[H]e parts with newsworthy information about the club reluctantly. He doesn't do timetables, and he doesn't do trial balloons. In that way alone, he is the anti-Giles" (Rich Hofmann, PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 2/27).
