FOS GALLERY: James Franklin Pitches In

The Penn State coach was honored before the Phillies’ win over Atlanta. Check out the image gallery featuring Franklin and two of his friends.

Penn State coach James Franklin will meet the press at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago Friday. But before heading for the Windy City, he made a stop in the City of Brotherly Love.

A product of the Philadelphia region, Franklin was on hand at the Phillies' game vs. Atlanta Thursday night to throw out the first pitch. Franklin and the PSU staff, which held a preseason retreat in Philly, were invited by former Phillies' radio man Chris Wheeler, a Penn State grad and longtime die-hard Nittany Lion fan.

FOS photographer Harvey Levine was on hand to cover the event. Check out his work below.
