Ryan Howard recalls historic peak in glimpse of NBCSP special


Ryan Howard will be in Philadelphia for his retirement ceremony on Sunday, July 14.

You can watch the ceremony live from Citizens Bank Park on Phillies Pregame Live just before the Phils take on the Washington Nationals. But before that, be sure to tune in at 12 p.m. for a special sitdown with the former Phillies slugger.

In the clip above, Howard recalls his historic 2006 season, in which he hit .313 with 58 homers and 149 RBIs and won the NL MVP.

It’s Phillies Focus: Ryan Howard, our exclusive chat with The Big Piece on his career in Phillies pinstripes. If you can’t make the 12 p.m. debut, or you live outside of the Delaware Valley, find out how you can still catch the special interview below.
