Joe Girardi said he was emotional in the Phillies' clubhouse after Wednesday's win, the 1,000th of his managerial career. Bryce Harper brought a tear to his eye with a postgame speech.

Here's a glimpse of what a choked-up Girardi said to his Phillies players.

"A lot of times I get emotional and act like this because I feel like I've been really blessed and lucky to be around a lot of great people like you guys," Girardi said.

"Not everyone gets this opportunity but I would tell you the uniform is a privilege. Keep it on as long as you can. And whenever you get an opportunity to put it on even longer, do it. Without you guys, this never happens. I don't win anything, nothing. I get to coach great players and have great coaches. God bless all of you and stay healthy."

Win No. 1,000 tied Girardi with Charlie Manuel for 64th on the all-time MLB managerial wins list. He'll pass Jim Fregosi about 30 wins from now and Felipe Alou from there.
