"The Hot Pants Patrol was a promotion used by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1970s, designed to draw more Phillies fans, particularly men, to baseball games at Veterans Stadium. It consisted of a large number of attractive young "fillies" or "usherettes" who were assigned to various sections thoughout the stadium. Their uniform consisted of white boots, somewhat revealing clothing which donned the Phillies logo, and of course hot pants. Despite being successful in boosting attendance, the concept came under scrutiny, mainly from feminists." Damn feminists, sitting around in their Birkenstocks, listening to the Indigo Girls, thinking of how to ruin a good time. It's bad enough that they want chicks to read and vote, but why did they have to take away hot pants-wearing usherettes at Phillies games? They went to far.
According to Wikipedia, "As a sign of the changing times, the Phillies organization retired the Hot Pants Patrol after the 1982 season." Well Bob Dylan, the times they are a changing again, and I believe it is time to bring the Hot Pants Patrol back to south Philadelphia. Pat Gillick may not be able to fill out a bullpen, but he should be able to find some ladies to fill out some hot pants. Hey, if they are good enough for Wonder Woman, they are good enough for the Phillies.
Hot pants. Yeah!
