2011 was arguably the most anticipated season in Phillies history. While the end result of the 2011 season disappointed, Opening Day certainly did not. Roy Halladay faced off against former Phillie Brett Myers in a pitcher’s duel. The Phillies found themselves down by two runs heading into the bottom of the ninth, but thanks to the heroics of pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr, the sold-out crowd at Citizens Bank Park went home happy.
