Goodbye NYC, Hello Philadelphia!

The Tour woke up in New York City this morning and will go to sleep in Philadelphia tonight! In a continuation of our conversation about immigration, we took the ferry to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island this morning. We think our photo gives Lady Liberty a run for her money! After lunch in Battery Park, our group hit the road to Philadelphia where we arrived at Citizens Bank Park for the Phillies vs. Marlins game. Thanks to the generosity of SquashSmarts Executive Director Steve Gregg and SquashSmarts Board Member Tom Mashek, we were able to get on the field and meet World Series Champion 1st baseman Ryan Howard, 6-time All Star 3rd baseman Chase Utley, and other Phillies. To cap off the unforgettable evening, we watched the game from a VIP suite and cheered the Phillies on to a 3-1 victory!
