PHILLY VIEWING PARTY – MLB World Tour: London Series 2024 – Recap

On Saturday, June 8th the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia hosted a Philly Viewing Party for the MLB World Tour – London Series 2024 at Founding Fathers Sports Bar & Grill in Philadelphia. It was a beautiful day in both Philadelphia and London, creating the ideal atmosphere for fans to enjoy the National League East showdown.  

In the game, the Mets took an early lead, scoring in the bottom of the first inning. However, the Philadelphia Phillies responded vigorously. Bryce Harper electrified the crowd with a home run to right field in the fourth inning, marking the first home run of the 2024 London Series. Harper celebrated with a dramatic slide on his knees in from of the Phillies’ dugout, reminiscent of a World Cup goal celebration. The Phillies’ momentum continued as Edmundo Sosa delivered an RBI single, allowing Alec Bohm to score. This was followed by Whit Merrifield’s three-run home run, his third of the season, extending the Phillies’ lead. Kyle Schwarber further contributed with an RBI single, bringing Christian Pache home and making the score 6-1 in favor of the Phillies. Nick Castellanos added to the tally with an eighth-inning homer, his 9th home run of the season. Despite the Mets’ efforts to rally in the bottom of the ninth, loading the bases with one out, Phillies’ pitcher Jose Ruiz managed to induce a game-ending play from J.D. Martinez, secured by Bryson Stott and Bryce Harper.   

This thrilling game provided excellent entertainment for BABCPHL members and friends, who enjoyed the match in the warm and friendly atmosphere of Founding Fathers on South Street in Philadelphia. There was a business card raffle draw for generous gifts donated by the Philadelphia Phillies and Ben Hooson-Jones & Jason Walker. Click here for photos.
