Manuel Won’t Miss Any Time to Attend Services for His Mother

Phils skipper and fearless leader Charlie Manuel will not miss any NLCS games to attend the funeral of his mother, June, who passed away before Game 2 on Friday.  She was 87.

The team announced Saturday that Manuel would leave after Wednesday’s Game 5 in LA and will take a private plane to Roanoke, Va., for the services. The viewing will be Thursday with the funeral Friday morning.

Manuel is scheduled to return to Philadelphia by 5 p.m. Friday for Game 6, if necessary.
