Former NBA All-Star Charles Barkley took in pre-game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs at Citizens Park in Philadelphia.

"He was very complimentary of us," Maddon said via "He's in Philly, he's gotta say that."

Maddon watched Barkley's NBA career with him living in Phoenix while Barkley was playing for the Suns.

"I watched him all the time. Very entertaining," Maddon said. "Obviously as a big fan of his game … it was really nice to get to meet him."
