Phillies fan honors chicken nuggets promise at Tuesday’s game (pics)

A Philadelphia Phillies fan honored a promise made on Twitter last week and was at Citizens Bank Park Tuesday night to hand out free chicken nuggets to his fellow fans.

Damon Miller Jr. on Thursday took to Twitter in response to a Phillies tweet and guaranteed chicken nuggets for all — relatively speaking — should something specific occur during the day’s tilt against the Miami Marlins: A Rhys Hoskins home run.

And wouldn’t you know it? Hoskins did in fact go yard, during the 2nd inning of the Phillies’ 10-0 victory.

Miller made an appearance at the ballpark Tuesday night to finally make good on his promise, which was chronicled by the Phillies on Twitter.

What a guy, indeed.

There’s no way to know how much his own cash Miller put up to make good on his offer — if any — but even if the Phillies footed the bill entirely it still made for a great scene.

For what it’s worth, Tuesday night made for an enjoyable evening at Citizens Bank Park for all fans in attendance — even if they didn’t get any free nuggets — as the Phillies upended the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score of 6-2.

And no, Hoskins did not hit a homer, although he did go 2-for-3 with 4 RBI. Not a bad night at all.
