The Philadelphia Phillies Celebrate 1990’s “Retro Night” [Photos]

Last night the Philadelphia Phillies paid homage to the terrible (or awesome depending on how you look at it) trends and style of the 1990’s with Retro Night. Each player had a special graphic when they stepped up to the plate, Waldo was in the house and apparently the walk up music included some classics too.
