Hamel asked for a patch in memory of Phillie's chairman David Montgomery, who passed earlier this month.
The team is carrying the emblem with the initials & # 39; DPM & # 39; in honor of Montgomery.
Along with his role in the Phillies front office, Montgomery gave much of his time and effort to volunteering at PHL Sports, a division of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau; Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce; Needs in Deed, a non-profit work with children in Philadelphia public schools; children's scholarship and Walnut Street Theater.
Hamel credits Montgomery to kick his own charity in his time in Philadelphia.
Hamels got no decision in his first match against his previous team Wednesday night. Cubs won 8-4.
