By Matt Veasey
The Philadelphia Phillies have announced their 2015 Promotional Schedule, which includes the typical fun times, giveaways and celebrations.

On Saturday, March 7th, fittingly against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Phils will give the first 6,000 fans Roy Halladay bobbleheads. Two weeks later on March 21st, it’s Alumni Day, and then on April 2nd the team will help celebrate the City of Clearwater Centennial.
