DAN BAKER, longtime PA announcer at the Vet, Lincoln Financial Field, and Citizens Bank Park, visited us last Thursday, and delivered a dynamic , and fascinating talk to a large gathering of members and guests. 
Dan was introduced by his longtime friend, JIM WILLIAMS, and proudly showed us hid WORLD SERIES Championship ring. Dan related many private experiences with Phillies players going back through all the many years that he has been doing the announcing. Besides the Phillies, he has worked games for the Eagles, Big 5 games basketball games, Major League All Star games, the ARMY / NAVY Game, and even pro wrestling one time.
To demonstrate his complete knowledge of the Phillies history, he ran a trivia contest with attendees, asking what seemed like very obscure questions about the Phillies from any year in the team's past. Some assistance was needed by some of the participants.
Winners included:
District  Assistant Governor MICHAEL SEIDNER
Jim Williams, proving basketball isn't that only sport he knows.
And the Dynamic Duo of Judy and Denise
Denise try on the ring to get that Championship feel
Thanks , DAN for a great talk.
