On Tuesday, October 13, Magee patients and staff—decked out in their Phillies caps and shirts—held a pep rally for the Phillies in the dining room where they sang “High Hopes” the inspirational ol’ tune made famous here in Philly by beloved broadcaster Harry Kalas who passed away at the beginning of the season.

The pep rally was so impressive that Fox TV broadcasted coverage of it on the evening news and their morning show “Good Day Philadelphia.”
