Nationals' First Grapefruit League Game
WIth Allen Iverson set to have his jersey retired Saturday night when the Sixers host the Wizards, everyone is getting in the spirit of remembering the former NBA superstar. Even the Phillies are showing some love.
Marlon Byrd wore an 'Iverson' Phillies jersey at spring training on Saturday as the team prepared to take on the Yankees in Grapefruit League play.
