Booking Philadelphia Phillies Player Appearances
Major League Baseball’s Philadelphia Phillies are a team in the National League East division, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, calling Citizens Bank Park home. The team was established in 1883; the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional American sports. In the late 19th century, the Phillies were sometimes referred to as the Philadelphia Quakers. Despite their long history, the Phillies first World Series win didn’t come until 1980, although they won the NL pennant in 1915 and 1950.
Pat Moran managed the Phillies in their first pennant win in 1915, with players that included Hall of Fame pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander and outfielder Gavvy Cravath. It took 35 years for their next pennant win, and the team was managed by Jimmie Wilson and led by infielder Chile Gomez, the Phillies first Latin born player, as well as third baseman Johnny Vergez and outfielder Ethan Allen. Following their success in the ‘50s, another drought ensued until the late 1970s with the team managed by Danny Ozark. The 1976 team won their division with players that included pitcher Tug McGraw and third baseman Mike Schmidt. They reached the pinnacle of success in 1980 managed by Dallas Green with both McGraw and Schmidt contributing as well as NLCS MVP second baseman Manny Trillo and Cy Young Award winner Steve Carlton. The team won their division in 1983 and 1993, but their next biggest success was in 2008 when they won their second World Series. The Phillies were managed by Charlie Manuel and led by NLCS and World Series MVP Cole Hamels, closer Brad Lidge, shortstop Jimmy Rollins and outfielder Shane Victorino. Today, they continue to be managed by Manuel and led by pitcher Cole Hamels, Victorino and Rollins as well as catcher Carlos Ruiz.
