Piece Out: Our Tribute to Ryan Howard
A lot of people don’t realize this, but Ryan Howard’s nickname, the “Big Piece,” comes from the “big piece” of umpire Scott Barry he once wanted to break off and devour.
Ryan Howard faced Tim Hudson three times that Sunday. Three times Howard circled him on the bases.
This is the best moment of 2016, hands down. Don’t even try to top it.
As Ryan Howard plays his last 15 home games as a Phillies player, we will be rolling out a new piece on the Big Piece every day, celebrating his career and all the memories (mostly great) he is leaving us with.
