Roy Halladay jersey bringing Phillies fans together in London

Teti grew up in South Philadelphia - 9th and Dickinson to be exact - with his family that emigrated from Italy in 1904. Teti says Philly food and sports have been a big part of his life since the beginning.

    Halladay jersey bringing Phillies fans together in London
    The admiration for Roy Halladay is bringing Phillies fans together 3,539 miles away from where he played in Philadelphia. A Halladay Phillies jersey hangs in front of the Liberty Cheesesteak Company's truck at the Old Spitalfields Market in London.
