Robin Visits The Sharks
Winning Legends scratch-off ticket
New Jersey Lottery (2004)
Phillies legend Robin Roberts is making an appearance at Campbell’s Field for tonight's game between the Camden Riversharks and the Pennsylvania Road Warriors. Roberts will throw out the first pitch and sign autographs for fans as part of the promotion of a new New Jersey lottery scratch-off game called Winning Legends. The ticket features Robin Roberts and fellow Phillies Hall Of Famers Steve Carlton and Mike Schmidt.
Robin Roberts won't be the only former Phillie to be in attendance at tonight's game. Kevin Jordan, who played for the Phillies from 1995-2001 is the Riversharks' starting second baseman.
UPDATE: The Riversharks defeated the Road Warriors 8-3. This photo of Roberts was published in the Courier Post. On a side note, the Road Warriors are a pretty interesting story. They're a team in the Atlantic League that doesn't have a home stadium and is only activated to play in seasons when the league has an odd number of teams.
