In Brief:  Phillies’ forum

 

Several members of the Phillies will be on hand at Compton's Log Cabin in Westmont Thursday night for an free open forum on baseball.

 

"Eddie Compton has been a friend of the team for a long time," said center fielder Garry Maddox. "We felt this was a good way to show our support."

 

Several people became ill after eating at Compton's last month and Maddox feels the club's presence will offer support.

 

"A group of them got together and decided to hold a hot stove session," said Chris Wheeler of the Phillies' publicity department. "They're going to eat and sit around and talk baseball with the public."

 

General Manager Paul Owens, Manager Dallas Green, Larry Bowa, Mike Schmidt, Greg Luzinski, Bob Boone, Randy Lerch and Maddox are the Phillies who will participate.
