Former Phillie Dickie Noles sends message

Before Saturday’s second game of York’s day-night twinbill against Lancaster, former Phillies pitcher Dickie Noles, a member of the 1980 World Series championship team, addressed the crowd at Sovereign Bank Stadium as a part of the York Recovery Night.
Noles spoke candidly of his years of alcohol and drug addiction. The former big league pulled no punches talking about how he started drinking at the tender age of 14-years-old.
In an impassioned speech, Noles went on to talk about his drinking and cocaine use that led to several brushes with the law and finally made him seek help for his addictions.

    Wow, a York Recovery Night. Have never heard of such a thing but what an interesting promotion. I’m glad he came out and I hope he was able to help somebody with his message.
