Four-time Cy Young Winner Will Meet with Guests at Philly’s Casino

PHILADELPHIA — April 3, 2013 — Baseball is back and Philly’s casino is celebrating the home opener on Friday, April 5, with a visit from Phillies legend Steve Carlton.

Carlton’s appearance will be open to the public from 7—8 p.m. in The Refinery restaurant and bar at SugarHouse Casino. The event is free to attend and guests will have an opportunity to meet Carlton one-on-one and take photos with the baseball icon. Fans must be 21 to attend.

A member of the Phillies for more than a decade beginning in 1972, Carlton is best known for helping the team earn the 1980 World Series title and the four years he was the Cy Young Award recipient. Carlton was a left-handed pitcher nicknamed “Lefty.”

“Philly loves a winner and Steve Carlton is one of the biggest winners in the history of the Phillies franchise,” said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “We’re happy we can offer this rare opportunity to our guests at the start of the season. Go Phils!”

In addition to Carlton’s appearance, SugarHouse is celebrating the Fightins’ all season long by once again hosting the PHL17 Phillies Post Game Show after all games broadcast on the station. Hosts Mike Missanelli, John Clark and Marty Bystrom will broadcast live from SugarHouse’s Refinery bar, which is open for guests to come and watch.

Prior to the Post Game recap, fans can also watch the game on one of SugarHouse’s 140 LCD TVs throughout the casino, or the screens on each of the 1,600 slot machines.

In addition, The Refinery will offer $2 hot dogs and $2 Bug Lights during every regular season game.
