PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Phillies fans are feeling good after Tuesday night’s Game 1 win over the San Diego Padres.
Jen Pellegrino recalls Kyle Schwarber’s absolute bomb in the 6th inning from 488 feet. It’s the longest home run in Petco Park’s 18-year history. You know, the one that left Bryce Harper speechless.
“I think that’s what all the faces looked like,” said Joe Quinn of Oreland, Pennsylvania.
And people everywhere are eating it up – literally!
The cookie queen herself, Victoria DiWilliams, who runs her business from her Lafayette Hill home, can’t fill orders fast enough.
“I knew it straight away. That’s it. This will be this week’s cookie – his face. My husband is always watching sports in Philadelphia so I think that’s the best thing we can do. It’s one thing we have in common,” she said. “I sold a few hundred yesterday. I promised everyone I’d be fully stocked by Friday.”
Over in Conshohocken the wings are in high demand at Flanigan’s Boathouse.
“They want their same seat and all that. They have to wear the same shirt, same pants, it’s hysterical!” said Jamie Weber, owner of Flanigan’s boathouse.
Speaking of shirts, you can still find some around town.
Flocco’s in Conshohocken has much-coveted Red October gear, and Chestnut Hill Sports is still pretty well stocked with hoodies, jackets and everything in between.
“We’re excited, it’s great for the city. Everyone wears red and seems friendlier to everyone,” said George Chiodo, partner at Chestnut Hill Sports.

However, tickets are harder to come by and will cost you. The cheapest tickets we found on StubHub are around $270 for Game 3 on Friday.
But some say going to the game is priceless.
“I mean, you can’t put a price on it, whatever it costs, I guess,” Quinn said.
