Check out the video above, In the clip, Plesac said, “I remember walking off the mound and my daughters were sitting in the first row, and there were three people that knew that I was retiring. Larry Bowa, Jim Thome, and Gary Varsho. And I when I walked off the mound it was like 18 years went so fast. …I was an emotional mess right there because I knew that the journey was over.“
Another great moment in Phillies history!
