The Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Phillies are an American professional baseball team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional American sports, dating back to 1883.[7] The Phillies compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League
National League
(NL) East division. Since 2004, the team's home has been Citizens Bank Park, located in South Philadelphia. The Phillies have won two World Series
World Series
championships (against the Kansas City Royals

in 1980 and the Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay Rays
in 2008) and seven National League
National League
pennants, the first of which came in 1915. The franchise has also experienced long periods of struggle. Since the first modern World Series
World Series
was played in 1903, the Phillies played 77 consecutive seasons (and 97 seasons from the club's establishment) before they won their first World Series—longer than any other of the 16 teams that made up the major leagues for the first half of the 20th century. The 77 season drought is the fourth longest World Series drought in Major League Baseball
Major League Baseball
history. The longevity of the franchise and its history of adversity have earned it the dubious distinction of having lost the most games of any team in the history of American professional sports.[8] Despite the team's lack of success historically, they are one of the more successful franchises since the start of the Divisional Era in Major League Baseball. The Phillies have won their division 11 times, which ranks 6th among all teams and 4th in the National League, including five consecutive division titles from 2007 to 2011. The franchise was founded in Philadelphia
Philadelphia
in 1883, replacing the team from Worcester, Massachusetts in the National League. The team has played at several stadiums in the city, beginning with Recreation Park and continuing at Baker Bowl; Shibe Park, which was later renamed Connie Mack Stadium
Connie Mack Stadium
in honor of the longtime Philadelphia

Athletics manager; Veterans Stadium; and now Citizens Bank Park. The team's spring training facilities are located in Clearwater, Florida, where its Class-A minor league affiliate Clearwater Threshers plays at Spectrum Field. Its Double-A affiliate is the Reading Fightin Phils, which plays in Reading, Pennsylvania, and its Triple-A affiliate is the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, which plays in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

After being founded in 1883 as the "Quakers", the team changed its name to the "Philadelphias", after the convention of the times. This was soon shortened to "Phillies".[9] "Quakers" continued to be used interchangeably with "Phillies" from 1883 until 1890, when the team officially became known as the "Phillies". Though the Phillies moved into a permanent home at Baker Bowl
Baker Bowl
in 1887,[7] they did not win their first pennant until nearly 30 years later, after the likes of standout players Billy Hamilton, Sam Thompson, and Ed Delahanty
Ed Delahanty
had departed. Player defections to the newly formed American League, especially to the cross-town Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Athletics, would cost the team dearly over the next several years. A bright spot came in 1915, when the Phillies won their first pennant, thanks to the pitching of Grover Cleveland Alexander and the batting prowess of Gavvy Cravath, who set what was then the modern major-league single-season record for home runs with 24.[10] Poor fiscal management after their appearance in the 1915 World Series, however, doomed the Phillies to sink back into relative obscurity; from 1918 to 1948 they only had one winning season. Though Chuck Klein

After lumber baron William B. Cox purchased the team in 1943, the Phillies rose out of the standings cellar for the first time in five years. As a result, the fan base and attendance at home games increased. But it soon became clear that not all was right in Cox's front office. Eventually Cox revealed that he had been betting on the Phillies and he was banned from baseball. The new owner, Bob Carpenter, Jr., scion of the Delaware-based DuPont family, tried to polish the team's image by unofficially changing its name to the "Bluejays". However, the new moniker did not take, and it was quietly dropped by 1949.[12]

Richie "Whitey" Ashburn would go on to become one of the most beloved sports figures in Philadelphia
Philadelphia
history.

Instead, Carpenter turned his attention to the minor league affiliates, continuing an effort begun by Cox a year earlier; prior to Cox's ownership, the Phillies had paid almost no attention to player development. This led to the advent of the "Whiz Kids", led by a lineup of young players developed by the Phillies' farm system that included future Hall of Famers Richie Ashburn
Richie Ashburn
and Robin Roberts.[13] Their 1950 season was highlighted by a last-day, pennant-clinching home run by Dick Sisler[14] to lead the Phillies over the Brooklyn Dodgers and into the World Series, where they were swept by the New York Yankees, four games to none (although each game was close). In contrast, the Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Athletics finished last in 1950 and long-time manager Connie Mack
Connie Mack
retired. The team struggled on for four more years with only one winning season before abandoning Philadelphia under the Johnson brothers, who bought out Mack. They began play in Kansas City in 1955.[15] As part of the deal selling that team to the Johnson brothers, the Phillies bought Shibe Park, where both teams had played since 1938.[13] Many thought that the Whiz Kids, with a young core of talented players, would be a force in the league for years to come.[16][17] However, it was not to be, as the team finished with a 73–81 record in 1951, and (except for 2nd-place tie in 1964) did not finish higher than third place again until 1975.[18] Their lack of success was partly blamed on Carpenter's unwillingness to integrate his team after winning a pennant with an all-white team. The Phillies were the last National League
National League
team to sign a black player, a full 10 years after Jackie Robinson
Jackie Robinson
made his debut for the Dodgers.[19] Their competitive futility was highlighted by a record that still stands: in 1961, the Phillies lost 23 games in a row, the worst losing streak in the majors since 1900. The Phold of '64[edit]

The 1964 Phillies

Though Ashburn and Roberts were gone, the 1964 Phillies still had younger pitchers Art Mahaffey, Chris Short, and rookie Ray Culp; veterans Jim Bunning
Jim Bunning
and screwballer Jack Baldschun; and fan favorites Cookie Rojas, Johnny Callison, and NL Rookie of the Year Richie Allen. The team was 90-60 on September 20, good enough for a six-and-a-half-game lead in the pennant race with 12 games to play. However, the Phillies lost 10 games in a row and finished one game out of first, losing the pennant to the St. Louis Cardinals. The "Phold of '64" is frequently mentioned as the worst collapse in sports history.[21] One highlight of the season occurred on Father's Day, when Jim Bunning pitched a perfect game against the New York Mets, the first in Phillies history.[22] 1970–83: Building a winning team[edit] See also: 1980 World Series

At the end of the decade, in October 1970, the Phillies played their final game in Connie Mack Stadium
Connie Mack Stadium
and prepared to move into newly built Veterans Stadium, wearing new maroon uniforms to accentuate the change. While some members of the team performed admirably during the 1970s, the Phillies still clung to their position at the bottom of the National League
National League
standings. Ten years after "the Phold", they suffered another minor collapse in August and September 1974, missing out on the playoffs yet again. But the futility would not last much longer. They had a run of three straight division titles from 1976 to 1978.[25] That run was led by pitchers Steve Carlton, Gene Garber, outfielder Greg Luzinski, and infielders Mike Schmidt

and Larry Bowa. The Phillies won the NL East in 1980 after the departure of Garber, but behind pitcher Steve Carlton, outfielder Greg Luzinski, and infielders Mike Schmidt, Larry Bowa, and recently acquired Pete Rose. 1980 World Series

on a tenth-inning, game-winning hit by center fielder Garry Maddox, and the city celebrated its first pennant in 30 years.[26] Facing the Kansas City Royals

in the 1980 World Series, the Phillies won their first World Series

championship ever in six games thanks to the timely hitting of Mike Schmidt

and Pete Rose. Schmidt, who was the National League
National League
MVP that 1980 season, also won the World Series

MVP award on the strength of his 8-for-21 hitting (.381 average), including game-winning hits in Game 2 and the clinching Game 6. This sixth, final game was also significant because it remains "the most-watched game in World Series
World Series
history" with a television audience of 54.9 million viewers.[27] Thus, the Phillies became the last of the 16 teams that made up the major leagues from 1901 to 1961 to win a World Series.[28] 1981–1983[edit] After their Series win Ruly Carpenter, who was given control of the team in 1972 when his father stepped down as team president, sold the team to a group which was headed by long time Phillies executive Bill Giles for $32.5 million in 1981. The Phillies would return to the playoffs that season, in which the season was split in half due to a players' strike. They were defeated in the first ever National League Division Series by the Montreal Expos

in five games. Mike Schmidt

strike was a blow to the Phillies' attendance and on-field success, as was the arrival of the Braves in the division due to league realignment. Several stars came through Philadelphia, though few would stay, and the minor league system continued to develop its young prospects, who would soon rise to Phillies fame. In 2001, the Phillies had their first winning season in eight years under new manager Larry Bowa, and their season record would not dip below .500 again from the 2003 season onward.[31] In 2004, the Phillies moved to their new home, Citizens Bank Park,[32] across the street from the Vet. 2005–12: The Golden Era[edit] See also: 2008 World Series

After the franchise lost its 10,000th game in 2007,[8] its core of young players, including infielders Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and Jimmy Rollins and pitcher Cole Hamels, responded by winning the National League East division title, but they were swept by the Colorado Rockies in the Division Series.[33] After the 2007 season, they acquired closer Brad Lidge. 2008: Second World Series

was moved to Philadelphia, because of security concerns for the G-20 Summit. The Blue Jays wore their home white uniforms and batted last as the home team, and the designated hitter was used.[38] The game was the first occasion of the use of a designated hitter in a National League

was the first player to fill the role.[39] The 2010 Phillies won their fourth consecutive NL East Division championship[40][41] despite a rash of significant injuries to key players, including Ryan Howard,[42] Chase Utley,[43] Jimmy Rollins,[44] Shane Victorino,[45] and Carlos Ruiz.[46] After dropping seven games behind the Atlanta Braves
Atlanta Braves
on July 21, Philadelphia finished with an MLB-best record of 97–65.[47] The streak included a 20–5 record in September, the Phillies' best September since winning 22 games that month in 1983,[48] and an 11–0 run in the middle of the month.[49] The acquisition of pitcher Roy Oswalt in early August was a key step, as Oswalt won seven consecutive games in just over five weeks from August 11 through September 17.[49] The Phillies clinched the division on September 27, behind a two-hit shutout by Halladay.[50]

The late Roy Halladay

(The first was New York Yankee pitcher Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series.[51]) Halladay's no-hitter was the fifth time a pitcher has thrown two no-hitters in the same season, and was also the first time that one of the two occurred in the postseason. The Phillies went on to sweep the Reds in three straight games. In the 2010 National League Championship Series, the Phillies fell to the eventual World Series champion San Francisco Giants
San Francisco Giants
in six games. On September 17, 2011, the Phillies won their fifth consecutive East Division championship,[52] and on September 28, during the final game of the season, the team set a franchise record for victories in a season with 102 by beating the Atlanta Braves

They played .500 ball through the first two months, but then slumped through a 9–19 stretch in June where they ended up at the bottom of the NL East by midseason. With any hope dimming, the Phillies traded key players Shane Victorino

on September 28, costing the Phillies the postseason for the first time since 2006. 2013–present: Recent years[edit] During the 2013 season, the team struggled again, and was unable to consistently play well for the majority of the season. On August 16, 2013, with the team's record at 53-68, the Phillies fired manager Charlie Manuel, who had managed the team since 2005,[54] and promoted third-base coach Ryne Sandberg
Ryne Sandberg
to Interim manager. Manuel had spent over nine years as manager, leading Philadelphia
Philadelphia
to its first World Series victory in nearly 30 years and amassing an overall record of 780-636 to become the manager with the most wins in the franchise's history. The 2013 Phillies ended up with a record of 73-89, their first losing season since 2002. In 2015, Sandberg resigned as manager and bench coach Pete Mackanin was brought in as interim manager. Also in 2015 general manager Rubén Amaro, Jr. was fired and Andy MacPhail
Andy MacPhail
was brought in as the interim GM. [55] In the 2014 season, one of the few bright spots was the September 1 game against a division rival, the Atlanta Braves, when starter Cole Hamels and relievers Jake Diekman, Ken Giles, and Jonathan Papelbon combined for a no-hitter in Turner Field

and a 7-0 victory over Atlanta. On June 16, 2015, veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur

uniforms

See footnotes[61][62]

Current uniform[edit] The current team colors, uniform, and logo date to 1992. The main team colors are red and white, with blue serving as a prominent accent. The team name is written in red with a blue star serving as the dot over the "i"s, and blue piping is often found in Phillies branded apparel and materials. The team's home uniform is white with red pinstripes, lettering and numbering. The road uniform is traditional grey with red lettering/numbering. Both bear a script-lettered "Phillies" logo, with the aforementioned star dotting the "i"s across the chest, and the player name and number on the back. Hats are red with a single stylized "P".[63] The uniforms and logo are very similar to those used during the "Whiz Kids" era from 1950 to 1969. The Phillies and their National League
National League
compadres the St. Louis Cardinals are the only teams in Major League baseball to utilize chain stitching in their chest emblem. In 2008, the Phillies introduced an alternate, cream-colored uniform during home day games in tribute to their 125th anniversary. The uniforms are similar to those worn from 1946 through 1949, featuring red lettering bordered with blue piping and lacking pinstripes.[64] The accompanying cap is blue with a red bill and a red stylized "P." The uniforms were announced on November 29, 2007, when Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, pitcher Cole Hamels, and Hall of Fame pitcher Robin Roberts modeled the new uniforms.[65] For the 2009 season the Phillies added black, circular "HK" patches to their uniforms over their hearts in honor of broadcaster Harry Kalas, who died April 13, 2009, just before he was to broadcast a Phillies game. From Opening Day
Opening Day
through July 26, 2009, the Phillies wore 2008 World Champions patches on the right sleeve of their home uniforms. In 2010, the Phillies added a black patch with a white "36" on the sleeves of their jerseys to honor Roberts, who died on May 6. Roberts' No. 36 had been previously retired by the team. In 2011, the Phillies added a black circular patch with a 'B' in honor of minority owners Alexander and John Buck, who died in late 2010. In 2015, the Phillies added a black circular patch with a white "SLB" in memory of minority owner Sara L. Buck, who died on August 23, 2014. In 2016, the Phillies added a red alternate uniform, similar to their spring training uniforms, to be used for mid-week afternoon games. The Phillies are one of four teams in Major League Baseball
Major League Baseball
that do not display the name of their city, state, or region on their road jerseys, joining the Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Angels
of Anaheim, St. Louis Cardinals, and the Tampa Bay Rays. The Phillies are the only team that also displays the player's number on one sleeve except on the alternate jersey, in addition to the usual placement on the back of the jersey.

Batting practice[edit] The Phillies were an early adopter of the batting practice jersey in 1977, wearing a maroon v-necked top with the "Phillies" script name across the chest, as well as the player name and number on the back and a player number on the left sleeve, all in white. Larry Bowa, Pete Rose, and Mike Schmidt

wore this maroon batting jersey in place of their road jersey during the 1979 All-Star Game in Seattle. Currently, during spring training, the Phillies wear solid red practice jerseys with pinstriped pants for Grapefruit League

Philadelphia
Phillies turn back the clock games From 1970 to 1991, the Phillies sported colors, uniforms, and a logo that were noticeably different from what had come before, or since, but that were widely embraced by even traditionally minded fans. A dark burgundy was adopted as the main team color, with a classic pinstripe style for home uniforms. Blue was almost entirely dropped as part of the team's official color scheme, except in one area; a pale blue (as opposed to traditional grey) was used as the base-color for away game uniforms from 1972 to 1988. Yet the most important aspect of the 1970 uniform change was the adoption of one of the more distinctive logos in sports; a Phillies "P" that, thanks to its unique shape and "baseball stitched" center swirl, remained instantly recognizable and admired, long after its regular use had ended. It was while wearing this uniform style and color motif that the club achieved its most enduring success, including a World Series
World Series
title in 1980 and another World Series
World Series
appearance in 1983.[63] Its continued popularity with fans is still evident, as even today Phillies home games can contain many fans sporting caps, shirts, and/or jackets emblazoned with the iconic "P" and burgundy color scheme. The current Phillies team has worn the burgundy and powder blue throwbacks whenever their opponents are wearing throwback uniforms from that era. Controversial uniform changes[edit] In 1979, the Phillies front office modified the uniform into an all-burgundy version with white trimmings, to be worn for Saturday games.[66] They were called "Saturday Night Specials" and were worn for the first and last time on May 19, 1979,[67] a 10–5 loss to the Expos.[68] The immediate reaction of the media, fans, and players alike was negative, with many describing the despised uniforms as pajama-like. As such, the idea was hastily abandoned.[69] Mike Schmidt did wear the uniform during the MLB
MLB
All-Star Tour of Japan following the 1979 season. The final appearance on field (to date) of this uniform was during the closing ceremonies at Veterans Stadium
Veterans Stadium
on September 28, 2003. There was a rather large procession of players during the post game ceremony, most in uniform. Former pitcher Larry Christenson, the starting pitcher in the original game, came out wearing this old burgundy uniform, and was the only one to do so. Another uniform controversy arose in 1994 when the Phillies introduced blue caps on Opening Day
Opening Day
which were to be worn for home day games only.[70] The caps were unpopular with the players, who considered them bad luck after two losses and wanted them discontinued. Management wanted to keep using the caps as planned, as they sold well among fans. A compromise was reached as the players agreed to wear them for weekday games while returning to the customary red caps for Sunday afternoon games.[71] In all, the Phillies wore the "unlucky" blue caps for seven games in 1994, losing six (the lone victory a 5-2 triumph over the Florida Marlins
Florida Marlins
on June 29).[72] A different blue cap was introduced in 2008 as part of the alternate home uniform for day games, a throwback to the late 1940s. Rivalries[edit] New York Mets[edit] Main article: Mets–Phillies rivalry

The Phillies take on the division rival New York Mets
New York Mets
at Citizens Bank Park on September 29, 2017

The rivalry between the New York Mets
New York Mets
and the Phillies was said to be among the "hottest" rivalries in the National League.[73][74] The two National League
National League
East divisional rivals have met each other recently in playoff, division, and wild card races. Aside from several brawls in the 1980s, the rivalry remained low-key before the 2006 season,[75] as the teams had seldom been equally good at the same time. Since 2006, the teams have battled for playoff position. The Mets won the division in 2006 and contended in 2007 and 2008, while the Phillies won five consecutive division titles from 2007 to 2011.[76] The Phillies' 2007 Eastern Division Title was won on the last day of the season as the Mets lost a seven-game lead with seventeen games remaining. Atlanta Braves[edit] Although the rivalry lacks the hatred of the Mets, it has been the more important one in the last decade. Since the realignment of the divisions, the Phillies and Braves have been the most consistent champions of the National League
National League
East. While rivalries are generally characterized by mutual hatred, the Braves and Phillies deeply respect each other. Each game played (18 games in 2011) is vastly important between these two NL East giants, but at the end of the day, they are very similar organizations.[77] Overall, the Braves and the Phillies have the most National League
National League
East division titles, with the Braves having won 12 times, and the Phillies having won 11 times each since 1969, with the Braves holding it for eleven consecutive years from 1995 through 2005. Historical rivalries[edit] Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
Pirates[edit] Main article: Phillies–Pirates rivalry The rivalry between the Phillies and the Pittsburgh Pirates
Pittsburgh Pirates
was considered by some to be one of the best rivalries in the National League.[78][79][80] The rivalry started when the Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
Pirates entered National League
National League
play in their fifth season of 1887, four years after the Phillies.[81] The Phillies and the Pirates had remained together after the National League split into two divisions in 1969. During the period of two-division play (1969 to 1993), the two National League
National League
East division rivals won the two highest numbers of division championships, reigning exclusively as NL East champions in the 1970s and again in the early 1990s,[81][82] the Pirates 9, the Phillies 6; together, the two teams' 15 championships accounted for more than half of the 25 NL East championships during that span.[83] After the Pirates moved to the National League
National League
Central in 1994, the teams face each other only in two series each year and the rivalry has diminished.[80] However, many fans, especially older ones, retain their dislike for the other team and regional differences between Eastern and Western Pennsylvania
Western Pennsylvania
still fuel the rivalry.[84] The rivalry between the Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Flyers and the Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
Penguins in the National Hockey League
National Hockey League
is also fiercely contested.[84][85] City Series: Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Athletics[edit] Main article: City Series (Philadelphia) The City Series was the name of a series of baseball games played between the Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Athletics of the American League
American League
and the Phillies that ran from 1903 through 1955. After the A's move to Kansas City, Missouri in 1955, the City Series rivalry came to an end. The teams have since faced each other in Interleague play
Interleague play
(since its introduction in 1997) but the rivalry has effectively died in the intervening years since the A's left Philadelphia. In 2014, when the A's faced the Phillies in inter-league play at O.Co Coliseum, the Athletics didn't bother to mark the historical connection, going so far as to have a Connie Mack
Connie Mack
promotion the day before the series while the Texas Rangers were in Oakland.[86] The first City Series was held in 1883 between the Phillies and the American Association's Athletics.[87] When the Athletics first joined the American League, the two teams played each other in a spring and fall series. No City Series was held in 1901 and 1902 due to legal warring between the National and American Leagues. Current roster[edit]

Phillies' environmental record Charitable contributions[edit] The Phillies have supported amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease) with the "Phillies Phestival" since 1984.[113] The team raised over US$750,000 for ALS research at their 2008 festival, compared with approximately $4,500 at the inaugural event in 1984;[113] the event has raised a total of over $10 million in its history.[114] The ALS Association of Philadelphia
Philadelphia
is the Phillies' primary charity,[115] and the hospitals they support include Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania
Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and Hahnemann University Hospital.[113] Former Phillies pitchers Geoff Geary (now with the Houston Astros), who lost a friend to the disease,[116] and Curt Schilling, who retired with the Boston Red Sox,[117] are both still involved with the Phillies' cause. Phanatic about Education The Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Phillies have shown themselves to be a big supporter of reading and overall education, using baseball in a positive way to help support education for students. The Phillies have a reading incentive program called Phanatic About Reading, which is designed to encourage students from kindergarten to eighth grade to read for a minimum of 15 minutes a night. This reading program is to help students with their literacy skills and comprehension. Phillies Phundamentals is another educational program, offered through after-school and summer camps, that is designed to make learning fun and support academic skills by using baseball. The Phillies celebrate teachers during their annual Teacher Appreciation Night.[118] Fan support[edit]

Phillies vs New York Mets, May 2, 2009 at Citizens Bank Park

See footnote[119]

Phillies fans have earned a reputation over the years for their occasional unruly behavior. In the 1960s, radio announcers for visiting teams would frequently report on the numerous fights breaking out in Connie Mack
Connie Mack
Stadium.[120][citation needed] Immediately after the final game at the old park, many fans ran onto the field or dislodged parts of the ballpark to take home with them.[121] Later, at Veterans Stadium, the 700 Level
700 Level
gained a reputation for its "hostile taunting, fighting, public urination and general strangeness."[122] Phillies fans famously are known for their reputation of being the "Meanest Fans in America".[123] Phillies fans are known for harsh criticism of their own stars such the 1964 Rookie of the Year Richie Allen
Richie Allen
and Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt. The fans, however, are just as well known for heckling the visiting team. Los Angeles Dodgers
Los Angeles Dodgers
pitcher Burt Hooton's poor performance during game three of the 1977 NLCS[124] has often been attributed to the crowd's taunting.[125] J. D. Drew, the Phillies' first overall draft pick in the amateur draft of 1997, never signed with the Phillies following a contract dispute with the team, instead re-entering the draft the next year to be drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals.[126] Phillies fans were angered over this disrespect and hurled debris, including two D batteries, at Drew during an August 1999 game.[127] Subsequent visits by Drew to Philadelphia
Philadelphia
continue to be met with sustained booing from the Phillies fans. Many sports writers have noted the passionate presence of Phillies fans, including Allen Barra, who wrote that the biggest roar he ever heard from Philadelphia
Philadelphia
fans was in 1980 when Tug McGraw, in the victory parade after the World Series, told New York fans they could "take this championship and shove it."[128] When the Phillies moved to Veteran's Stadium, they hired a group of young ladies to serve as ushers. These women wore maroon-colored outfits featuring hot pants and were called the Hot Pants Patrol.[129] The team also introduced a pair of mascots attired in colonial garb, named Philadelphia
Philadelphia
Phil and Phyllis. In addition to costumed characters, animated Phil and Phyllis figures mounted on the center field facade would "hit" the Liberty Bell
Liberty Bell
after a Phillie home run. This pair of mascots never achieved any significant level of popularity with fans and were eventually discontinued.[129] In 1978, the team introduced a new mascot, the Phillie Phanatic, who has been called "baseball's best mascot", which has been much more successful and has become closely associated with the marketing of the team.[130] In Phillies fan culture, it is also not unusual to replace an "f" with a "ph" in words, such as the Phillie Phanatic.[131] The club surpassed 100 consecutive sellouts on August 19, 2010, selling out over 50% of their home games and averaging an annual attendance of over 3.1 million fans since moving to Citizens Bank Park;[132] on April 3, 2011, the team broke the three-game series attendance record at the ballpark, having 136,254 fans attend the opening weekend against the Houston Astros.[133] In 2011 and 2012, the Phillies led the league in attendance with 3,680,718 and 3,565,718 fans, respectively, coming out to watch Phillies baseball.[134][135][136][137][138] Season-by-season records[edit] Main article: List of Philadelphia

Iconic former Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas

As of 2018, the Phillies' flagship radio stations is WIP-FM
WIP-FM
(94.1 FM), formerly owned by CBS Radio
CBS Radio
but since November 2017, owned by Philadelphia-area company Entercom. The broadcasts were discontinued on the former AM flagship station WPHT
WPHT
1210 in 2016.[162] Scott Franzke and Jim Jackson provide play-by-play on the radio, with Larry Andersen as the color commentator. Meanwhile, NBCUniversal
NBCUniversal
(a unit of Philadelphia-based Comcast) handles local television broadcasts through its properties NBC Sports Philadelphia
Philadelphia
and WCAU
WCAU
(NBC10). Tom McCarthy calls play-by-play for the television broadcasts, with Ben Davis, Mike Schmidt
Mike Schmidt
and John Kruk
John Kruk
providing color commentary. Spanish language broadcasts are on WTTM
WTTM
(1680 AM)[163] with Danny Martinez on play-by-play, and Bill Kulik and Rickie Ricardo on color commentary. Other popular Phillies broadcasters through the years include By Saam from 1939 to 1975, Bill Campbell from 1962 to 1970, Richie Ashburn from 1963 to 1997, and Harry Kalas
Harry Kalas
from 1971 to 2009.[164] Kalas, a 2002 recipient of the Ford Frick Award
Ford Frick Award
and an icon in the Philadelphia area, called play-by-play in the first three and last three innings on television and the fourth inning on the radio until his death on April 13, 2009. At Citizens Bank Park, the restaurant built into the base of the main scoreboard is named "Harry the K's" in Kalas's honor. After Kalas's death, the Phillies' TV-broadcast booth was renamed "The Harry Kalas Broadcast Booth". It is directly next to the radio-broadcast booth, which is named "The Richie 'Whitey' Ashburn Broadcast Booth". When the Phillies win at home, Kalas' rendition of the song "High Hopes", which he would sing when the Phillies had clinched a playoff berth or advanced in the playoffs, is played as fans file out of the stadium. In addition, when a Phillies player hits a home run a recording of Kalas' famous "That ball is outta here!" home run call is played. The sole exception is Chase Utley, once the subject of another famous Kalas call, "Chase Utley, you are The Man!", which is played when Utley hits a homer. In 2011, the Phillies unveiled a statue of Harry Kalas
Harry Kalas
at Citizens Bank Park. The statue was funded by Phillies fans and designed and constructed by a Phillies fan. The Phillies' public-address (PA) announcer is Dan Baker, who started in the 1972 season.[165][166] In 2011, the Phillies spent $10 million to upgrade the video system at Citizens Bank Park, including a new display screen in left field, the largest in the National League.[167][168] See also[edit]

Footnotes[edit] Article[edit]

a In 1981, a mid-season players' strike split the season. Philadelphia, with the best record in the East Division when play was halted, was declared the first-half division winner. They would, however, lose to the second half-winning Montréal Expos
Montréal Expos
in the NLDS, losing the overall division title. The Phillies' record over the entire season was third-best in the division, 2½ games behind St. Louis and Montréal. b The Phillies are the only National League

team with two perfect games. Four American League

teams have accomplished the feat: New York Yankees (3), Chicago White Sox

Season records[edit]

a The Finish column lists regular season results and excludes postseason play. b The Wins and Losses columns list regular season results and exclude any postseason play. c The GB column lists "Games Back" from the team that finished in first place that season. It is determined by finding the difference in wins plus the difference in losses divided by two.
