The Philadelphia Phillies entered Spring Training in 1981 as reigning World Champions. During Spring Training the Phillies suited up in an all green uniform to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. In celebration of his favorite holiday, Tug McGraw sported a Phillies uniform dyed green for his first Spring Training with the team. Since then, the Phillies auction off green hats for their ALS charity in honor of the March 17 holiday. During the 2003 season, a green number 45 jersey hung in the Phillie's dugout of each game.
