Center City house gets a Phillies makeover from home improvement show

    Think you’re the biggest Phillies fan? Johhny McDonald has just upped the ante.

    The Center City resident got a surprise this week when folks from the TV show House Crashers showed up to remake his basement and backyard.

    Work began Monday and wrapped up Wednesday, as CBS3 reports, and now McDonald and his wife Tiffany now have the “ultimate Phillies phan room,” thanks to some help from the Phanatic and former Phillies pitcher Mitch Williams.

    The episode will air on the DIY Network this fall.
