Philadelphia Phillies Details
The Phillies franchise began in 1883 when they joined the National League after a team unnamed team from Worcester, Massachusetts folded. The Phillies are the oldest American pro-sports team to have never relocated or changed its name.
Despite their longevity, the Phillies have only won two World Series championships. It took them until 1980 — 77 years after the first-ever World Series — win their first title. That 1980 team included players like Tug McGraw and Larry Bowa, along with future Hall of Famers Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton. After their win over the Royals in Game 6, the Phillies became the last of Major League Baseball’s founding teams to win the World Series.
After a 14 year absence, the Phillies qualified for the playoffs in 2007 after winning the National League East. The Phillies won a team-record five consecutive NL East titles between 2007 and 2011. This Phillies’ Golden Age, in which the team fielded players like Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, and Cole Hamels, was highlighted by two appearances in the World Series, including a title — clinched at home on a strikeout from closer Brad Lidge — in 2008 over the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Phillies have started to rebuild in the years after their stretch of division titles. It has been a painful few years for Philadelphia fans, but their patience may finally be starting to pay off. Although the Phillies finished fifth in the NL East in 2017, the year was also noteworthy for the emergence of rookie Rhys Hoskins. Hoskins, a mid-season call-up, hit his first ten home runs in just 17 games, setting an MLB record. Hoskins finished the year with 18 home runs in 50 games.
The Phillies will begin 2018 with a new manager: Gabe Kapler will take over after spending last season as the Dodgers' Director of Player Development.
Citizens Bank Park has been the home of the Phillies since 2004. It has a reputation as one of the most home-run-friendly parks in baseball.
