It was truly a sight to see today. After unwrapping it and taking it out of the box — very carefully I may add, the Gnome was “alive”.
Earlier today, R-Phils front office members took some time getting to know it. The Life-Size Ryan Howard Garden Gnome made a few special visits around the ballpark too! It paid a visit to the Mitchell & Ness R-Phils Team Store and also took a stroll in front of the ballpark. He had a great time getting to see the AWESOME stadium renovations.
On Opening Night, fans will get to see this masterpiece up-close. And, when they see it, they are going to love it. It really is everything we hoped for!
One lucky fan is going to win this Life-Size gnome on Opening Night! All fans that come out to America’s Classic Ballpark on Thursday will get a FREE entry form and will have the chance to win this ultimate collectible. Good luck to everyone!
Here is a sneak peek of the gnome fron tonight’s news — WFMZ 69 NEWS .
Here are some of the pictures I took from his journey around FirstEnergy Stadium. Enjoy!
