FIFTY FATHER'S Days since the best one a pitcher could ever envision, Jim Bunning took the mound at Citizens Bank Park.
Yesterday afternoon, before Philadelphia capped its six-game homestand, the Phillies commemorated Bunning's perfect game on Father's Day of 1964. Sporting a throwback No. 14 jersey, Bunning was joined on the field by former teammates Dick Allen and Cookie Rojas, both of whom were in the lineup that June 21 day at Shea Stadium. [...]
Bunning, a father of nine, afterward joked about his ceremonial first pitch, which he tossed well wide of a crouching Larry Bowa.
"Obviously, from the pitch that I threw, you can tell I haven't touched a ball in 6 years," he said with a laugh.
