WATCH: Philadelphia Phillies Stalwart Channels His Inner Stone Cold Steve Austin at an Exciting NHL Game

Published 01/19/2023, 5:23 AM EST

Brandon Marsh, known for his distinctive and lengthy beard, made his debut in the MLB with the Los Angeles Angels in 2021 as a replacement for injured players Mike Trout and Justin Upton. The following year, the Anaheim-based team traded the potentially bright outfielder who filled Mike Trout’s shoes to the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for catching prospect Logan O’Hoppe. Now, during the offseason, the outfielder has managed to impress Philly fans with a rather unique antic in the bleachers of an NHL game, which would make WWE legend Steve Austin proud.

As Philadelphia Flyers took on the Anaheim Ducks in Pennsylvania, the camera slowly pointed toward the distinctive beard of outfielder Brandon Marsh. The outfielder who batted 0.245 in his debut season with the Phillies sat comfortably in the bleachers with a glass of beer in his hand.

Shortly after, Marsh chugged the glass of beer and did it surprisingly fast, too. “Smash the Bell Beer” – captioned the Flyers’ official Twitter handle while uploading a video of the outfielder. Adjacently, the Flyers added a mention to the 52×35 feet tall and wide Liberty Bell, with “#RingTheBell.”

Brandon Marsh started in every game during the 2022 postseason, where the Phillies made it to the World Series, but lost to the Astros in game six. In a total of 39 at-bats in the postseason, Marsh averaged 0.179 with seven hits, two homers, and five runs batted in.

How did fans react to Brandon Marsh’s appearance at the Flyers’ home?

The Phillies Twitter handle acknowledged the Flyers’ upload. Apart from that, both Philadelphia fans, the Flyers, and the Phillies absolutely loved Marsh’s appearance at the Wells Fargo Center. As a result, the entire fandom hyped him up:
