Great play and great campaigning!
ESPN Sports Center not only included this highlight in their Top 10 plays, but they also mentioned the shirt Sam was wearing while making this incredible play — because it said “Vote for Pat.” This was with two out in the top of the sixth against the Cardinals on Tuesday night. Great play! And you have to like the broadcaster’s line: “She just Cadillac’d it.”

In addition to wearing those shirts, the Phillies Ballgirls have been campaigning heavily for Pat Burrell, who as of Wednesday evening was in a tight race for the National League selection as Monster 2008 All-Star Game Final Vote. Vote constantly until the 5 p.m. ET Thursday close of balloting! Yesterday and today the ballgirls have taken to the streets of Philadelphia with posters and handing out Vote For Pat cards. They were also several radio stations this morning handing out Vote For Pat shirts to the on air personalities. Here are some pics:
