As the Philadelphia 76ers prepare to honor Allen Iverson by retiring his NBA jersey, one member of the Phillies wanted to show his own appreciation of "The Answer."

Outfielder Marlon Byrd, 36, honored Iverson during the Phillies' spring training batting practice by wearing a No. 3 jersey with A.I.'s name on the back.

Byrd is returning to the Phillies after playing with the team from 2002 to 2005, back when Iverson was putting up huge numbers with the 76ers.
