HERE COME THE MEN IN RED: WILL SMITH A BIG HIT IN PHILLY

          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).
