Philies announcers Tom McCarthy, John Kruk and Ben Davis to call Phillies game from stands as part of Authentic Fan Night

PHILADELPHIA- (June 15, 2018) – As part of NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Authentic Fan Night at the Phillies Tom McCarthy, John Kruk and Ben Davis will call the game from the first row of Section 138, along the third base line. Highlights of this special broadcast will include visits from The Phanatic, Gregg Murphy interacting with the Authentic Fans and a number of other fun surprises.

“Phillies fans join us in section 138 as TMac, Ben and myself will be announcing the game in the stands,” said Kruk. “It was a great experience last year from the right field bleachers, so this year down the left field line should be more fun, or more dangerous! Hope to see you all there!”

The June 19th game is the second Authentic Fan Night of the season. Earlier this year NBC Sports Philadelphia and the Phillies announced six Authentic Fan Nights throughout the season. In addition to a discounted ticket package, fans receive a limited edition Phillies Authentic Fan hat, plus they are highlighted throughout the night’s broadcast and in-stadium.
