Philadelphia Phillies

On November 23, 2005, Rowand was traded by the White Sox along with minor league pitchers Gio Gonzalez and Daniel Haigwood to the Philadelphia Phillies for first baseman Jim Thome and approximately $22 million. White Sox fans still discuss whether or not this was a good trade, as Rowand, a hard-nosed team-first player, was immensely popular in Chicago. This is evident as he cleary received the loudest, longest ovation at the World Series ring ceremony, despite the fact that he was no longer with the team.[citation needed] November 23 is the 327th day of the year (328th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar, with 38 days remaining. ...

On May 11, 2006, in the first inning of a game versus the New York Mets, Rowand made a spectacular play by smashing into the center field fence of Citizens Bank Park face first at full speed in order to reach a ball off the bat of Xavier Nady with the bases loaded, that would otherwise have scored three runs. Rowand suffered a broken nose and severe lacerations to his face. The Phillies won the game, 2-0, in a rain shortened 5-inning game. Rowand, now considered to be a "hero" to the local Phillies fans on the same caliber as Lenny Dykstra (who would constantly "crash" into the outfield walls to catch potential run-scoring plays ironically playing for both the Mets and the Phillies) underwent seven hours of surgery to repair the nose, and was placed on the 15-day disabled list. He returned to the starting lineup on May 26, 2006.
