Blossom Terry of Rydal, Pennsylvania, has been a Phillies fan since childhood. Now in her 80's, the Camden native remembers the day the Phillies gave her a baseball in 1950 when she played in a pregame Brunettes versus Blondes softball scrimmage at Connie Mack Stadium.
She still has the ball.
"They presented each one of us with a ball and signed the ball," Blossom said.
The widowed mother of three was a model and actress.
In the film 'Witness', she played a mom during a scene shot at 30th Street Station.
The Phillies fan's acting career was rooted in baseball.
She was co-host of the game show Batter-Up. It seems Blossom was the first woman host on WFIL, the station that became channel 6.
In 1950, she was at the World Series when her Whiz Kids faced the Yankees.
She's sure they can win it this time.
"I'm just so proud of them and I'm proud of their boss," Blossom said.
Her favorite Phillie is the boss himself, manager Charlie Manuel.
"And he's doing a remarkable job. so you're never too old to do something you love," Blossom said.
This year, Blossom turned down series tickets from her son and declines specific predictions fearing it may bring bad luck.
"I just have a feeling. I don't want to go because I'm liable to put the kibosh on them. I'm not usually superstitious, but everybody's waiting for Phillies to win so I thought I'd keep my mouth shut," Blossom said.
This wise Phillies fan who'll be watching and rooting for the team advises they eat and live well.
"Just be nice and smile and feel good you're in the game and I know you're going to win!" Blossom said.
