Roy Halladay trolls Jamie Moyer at Phillies “80’s” party

  • David Whitlock

For those of us who have been alive for 30 or more years, many remember 1986 fondly.  The country was in relative peace with a popular president in Ronald Reagan.  Pop stars like Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, and Michael Jackson were ushering in a new era of rebellion for youngsters (just wait until the 90’s).  And Jamie Moyer was a heralded rookie for the Chicago Cubs.  The latter fact was not lost upon the recently retired Roy Halladay, who dressed as the 1986 Jamie Moyer at a 1980’s themed party, check out a tweet from Moyer himself.

Where do you even find such a relic?  That would be Mrs. Karen Moyer with the heart fingers.  She also hung out with Run DMC (Howard and Rollins).

The Phillies may not have been winning lately, but they know how to throw a fun 80’s party!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
