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:

Congrats to Sam on making ESPN’s Top 10 Plays of the Day. One thing I am coming to realize this season is that you all have some really good gloves…this seems to happen a lot. Like they’re just routine plays when in fact they are rockets smoked off Major Leaguers’ bats. Anyone who noticed a great play by the Phillies Ballgirls, just post it as a comment here during the course of this season. Be sure to include very detailed situation if you can – who’s at-bat, what half of what inning, and what game/date. We can pull the clip at MLBAM and get it onto the site here. Maybe at the end of the year the audience here votes on the Play of the Year. Phillies Ballgirls have skillz!
