Former Phillies organist Paul Richardson died on Monday []. Hearing the organ playing at a baseball game makes no sense in theory if you stop and think about it, but the combination works together quite beautifully in practice. Listening to Paul Richardson on the organ during a visit to the Vet back in the early 90's is literally one of the earliest memories that I can recall. I was at Yankee Stadium over the weekend and one of the things I noticed was the way the Yanks still employ an organist to handle all of the pre-game music entertainment. It would be a fitting tribute if the Phillies decided to go back in time and begin to play nothing but organ music during the pre-game festivities at Citizens Bank Park once again.
