Ryan Howard’s emotional last day: ‘It will be with me forever’ | PhillyVoice

The final day of the 2016 regular season was Howard’s moment at Citizens Bank Park.

It was his final game in a Phillies uniform. It was a recognition of his iconic 13-year stay in Philadelphia.

It was an emotional goodbye for the 36-year-old Howard, who is set to file for free agency for the first time in his professional career next month.

“Today is a day I’ll definitely remember,” he told the crowd of 36,935 inside the ballpark after the game’s final out. “Philadelphia will always be home.”

With end nearing, Ryan Howard will play in final two weekend series in South Philly | PhillyVoice

When the month began, Mackanin said he planned to play Tommy Joseph more at first base in an effort to see more of the younger half of the first base timeshare. But he’s reversed course, knowing that this could be it for Howard.

“I just kept thinking about it, the whole year I’ve been thinking about it, that situation,” Mackanin said. “Especially as well as he’s handled the whole thing, he’s been so good about the whole thing, I want to give him something.”

Mackanin will start Howard in each of the final two home weekends, unless the team is matched up against a left-handed starter.

“Another 20-25 at-bats won’t matter for Joseph,” Mackanin said.
