The ink is barely dry on his walking papers as the Phillies manager, but the team is honoring Charlie Manuel anyway. They’re putting him on their Wall of Fame:

“It is only fitting that Charlie become the newest member of our Wall of Fame,” said Phillies President David Montgomery.  “His contributions to our club, his unparalleled connection with our fans, and his overall passion and love of the game made the decision an easy one.  He has left an indelible mark on Phillies history and he deserves this honor.”

It’s fitting. Dude brought the team a championship and a lot of good baseball to Philly. Glad to see that there isn’t any bad blood after the way things ended.

    Better Charlie then say Don Carman or Ricky Jordan

      Don Carman had a great half season when he first came up. The rest of his career……never mind. As far as Ricky Jordan goes, he had a great uppercut swing. It was the kind of swing that if he ever really connected the ball would have gone 500 feet. I can still hear Whitey Ashburn saying to Kalas “Harry, if this guy ever connects, that ball is going to go a long way”.

    He’s still employed by the team, he’s an advisor to Ruben.

    Charlie is Philly’s version of Bobby Cox. Talented teams with deep pitching built to win the WS only to win once.

    Take a moment to ask to wear red phillies T-Shirts with “FIREAMARO” on the back with the Number “00″.
    See all fans wearing these at the Bank and other stadiums.
