For those who don’t know, Tim McGraw is the son of the late star pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies, Tug McGraw, who was apart of Philadelphia’s very first World Series team in 1980.
Although Tim discovered he was Tug’s son at a young age, he didn’t meet his father until he was 11, and didn’t see him again until he was 18, where the two maintained a close relationship until Tug’s death in 2004 after a year long battle with a brain tumor.
If you keep up with baseball, then you know that the Phillies are squaring off against the Houston Astros in the World Series, with the Phillies leading the series 2-1 in the best of seven series.
This is the first year the Phillies have made the World Series since 2009, and needless to say, their fanbase is stoked, and that includes Tim McGraw himself.
Tim was in Philly for Game Three last night at Citizens Bank Park, and he knew he had the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to his late father, who is a Phillies legend.
He was seen last night rocking a sweet baby blue throwback Phillies jersey, with his dad’s name and number, 45.
