The "Phillies" name originates as a shortened version of the "Philadelphias", as the convention at the time was to call the team by their home city. They are nicknamed "the Fightin' Phils", or "The Phils". It is a convention in Phillies culture to substitute "F" with "Ph" in various terms or names, such as "the Phans".

History

Origins

In 1883, sporting goods manufacturer Al Reach (a pioneering professional baseball player) and attorney John Rogers won an expansion National League franchise for Philadelphia. They were awarded the remains of the Worcester Brown Stockings, a franchise which had folded in 1882. The new team was named the Quakers. The team's opening season .173 winning percentage is still the worst in franchise history. The following are the baseball events of the year 1883 throughout the world. ...

In 1884, Harry Wright (the future Hall of Famer) was recruited as manager in the hope of reversing the team's fortunes. The team was rechristened the "Phillies" (an homage to their hometown) and in 1887 they began play at the Baker Bowl. Despite a general improvement from their dismal beginnings, they never seriously contended for the title. The standout players of franchise in the era were Billy Hamilton, Sam Thompson, and Ed Delahanty, who in 1896 tied the major-league record (since tied by several others) with 4 home runs in a single game. The following are the baseball events of the year 1884 throughout the world. ...

Early 1900s

With the birth of the more lucrative American League in 1901, the Phillies saw many of their better players defect to the upstart, including a number of players who ended up playing for their crosstown rivals the Athletics, owned by former Phillies minority owner Benjamin Shibe. The American League (or formally the American League of Professional Baseball Clubs) is one of two leagues that make up Major League Baseball in the United States of America and Canada. ... Benjamin F. Shibe (1838 - January 14, 1922) was an American executive in Major League Baseball who was half-owner of the Philadelphia Athletics. ...


While their former teammates thrived (the AL's first five batting champions were former Phillies), the remaining squad fared dismally, finishing 46 games out of first place in 1902. To add tragedy to folly, a balcony collapsed during a game at the Baker Bowl, killing 12 and injuring hundreds. The costs of the disaster forced Reach and Rogers to sell the Phillies rather than risk financial ruin. The following are the baseball events of the year 1902 throughout the world. ...

The Phillies won their first pennant in 1915 thanks to the pitching of Grover Cleveland Alexander and the batting prowess of Gavvy Cravath, who set the major-league single-season record for home runs with 24. However, by 1917 Alexander had been traded away when owner William Baker refused to increase his salary. Baker was known for running the Phillies very cheaply; for instance, during much of his tenure there was only one scout in the entire organization.

The effect of the Alexander trade was immediate. In 1918--only three years after winning the pennant-- the Phillies finished 13 games under .500. It was the start of one of the longest streaks of futility in baseball history. From 1918 to 1947, the Phillies would have only one winning record (78-76 in 1932), only finished higher than sixth twice, and would never be a serious factor past June. The team's primary stars during the 1920s and 1930s were outfielders Cy Williams, Lefty O'Doul, and Chuck Klein, who captured the vaunted Triple Crown in 1933. Unfortunately, Philadelphia's cozy Baker Bowl proved to be a fertile hitting ground for Phillies opponents as well, and in 1930, the team surrendered 1199 runs, a major-league record still standing today.

Charles Herbert Klein (October 7, 1904 - March 28, 1958) was a Major League Baseball player who played for the Philadelphia Phillies (1928-33, 1936-39, 1940-44), Chicago Cubs (1934-36) and Pittsburgh Pirates (1939). ...


1930s-1940s

Baker's death in 1930 left the team to his nephew, Gerald Nugent. Unlike Baker, he badly wanted to build a winning team. However, he didn't have the financial means to do so. He was forced to trade what little talent the team had to make ends meet, and often had to use some creative financial methods to even field a team at all.[1] One problem was Baker Bowl. Once considered one of the finest parks in baseball, it was not well maintained from the 1910s onward. For several years, the Phillies tried to move to Shibe Park, five blocks north on Lehigh Avenue, as tenants of the A's. However, Baker Bowl's owner, Charles W. Murphy, refused to let the Phillies out of their lease at first. He finally relented in 1938--and only then because the city threatened to condemn the dilapidated park. Despite the change of scenery, attendance rarely topped 3,000 a game. Shibe Park, known for the last one-third of its existence as Connie Mack Stadium, was a Major League Baseball park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. ... The following are the baseball events of the year 1938 throughout the world. ...


The nadir came in 1942, when the Phillies needed an advance from the league just to go to spring training. Nugent, unable to find a buyer, was forced to sell the franchise back to the league early in February 1943. A week later, the league sold the Phillies to a wealthy lumber broker named William Cox. A popular legend has it that Bill Veeck had agreed in principle to buy the Phillies from Nugent. As the story goes, Baseball Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis and National League President Ford Frick quashed the deal when they found out that Veeck planned to stock the Phillies with Negro League stars. However, this story is likely false based on press accounts of the time; notably, Philadelphia's black press mentioned nothing about any prospective Veeck purchase.[1] To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...

Part of the History of baseball series. ...


For the first time in decades, the Phillies had an owner who was not only committed to building a winner, but wasn't afraid to spend the money it took to do so. His efforts had an immediate impact, as the team rose out of the standings cellar for the first time in 5 years in 1943, and the fans responded in kind, as attendance rose for the first time in nearly 30 years. However, Cox was a very hands-on owner. When his manager, Bucky Harris, objected to Cox's interference, Cox fired him. Out of revenge, Harris dropped a bombshell to the Philadelphia press in his hotel room--he had evidence that Cox was placing bets on his own team.

Bucky Harris Stanley Raymond Bucky Harris (November 8, 1896 - November 8, 1977) was a Major League Baseball player, manager and executive. ...


After an investigation, Cox admitted to making "sentimental" bets on the Phillies, but didn't know it was against the rules. This made no difference to Landis, who banned Cox from baseball for life. Author Rich Westcott was quoted by Sports Illustrated as saying Cox knew "next to nothing about baseball. Otherwise, why would he have bet on the Phillies?" [1] Soon afterward, Cox sold controlling interest in the Phillies to DuPont heir Robert R.M.

Carpenter's first act was to try to change the team's name (and vicariously, its image) to the "Blue Jays" after a city wide vote on a new nickname. However, "Phillies" continued to appear on the team's jerseys, with a Blue Jay appearing on the sleeves. Students at Johns Hopkins University, whose teams are also known as the Blue Jays, vehemently protested Carpenter's decision, claiming that it dishonored their school. The nickname was quietly dropped in 1946. The Johns Hopkins University, founded in 1876, is a private institution of higher learning located in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. ...

Carpenter, like Cox, wasn't afraid to spend the money it took to build a contender. He immediately started signing young players and devoted significant resources to the farm system. By the 1950s, the Phillies had gone from basement to pennant contender thanks to the "Whiz Kids," led by a lineup of young players developed by the Phillies' farm system that included future Hall of Famers Richie Ashburn and Robin Roberts.

Although the Phillies led in the standings for most of the 1950 season, a late-season tailspin (triggered by the loss of Simmons to National Guard service) caused the team to lose the next eight of 10 games. On the last day of the season, the Phillies hung onto a one-game lead when Dick Sisler's dramatic tenth-inning, three-run home run against the Dodgers clinched the Phils' first pennant in 35 years. In the World Series, exhausted from their late-season plunge and recipients of poor luck, the Phillies were swept by the New York Yankees in four straight games. In 1954, the Athletics had moved to Kansas City, and sold Shibe Park (renamed Connie Mack Stadium in 1953) to the Phillies.

During their 30-year stretch of futility, the Phillies finished last a total of 17 times and next to last seven times.

During 1962 and 1963, the Phillies began to climb back to respectability, and throughout the 1964 season, they seemed destined to make it to the World Series, with excellent performances from players such as rookie third baseman Dick Allen, starters Jim Bunning (obtained from the Detroit Tigers at the start of the season to shore up the pitching staff) and Chris Short, and star right fielder Johnny Callison. TV Guide went to press with a World Series preview that featured a photo of Connie Mack Stadium. However, from a 6½-game lead on the Cincinnati Reds with 12 games remaining in the season, Philadelphia collapsed in a 10-game losing streak (the first seven played at home). The crucial series came when the now second-place Phillies traveled to St. Louis to play the Cardinals after their losing home stand. They dropped the first game of the series to Bob Gibson by a 5-1 score, their eighth loss in a row, dropping them to third place. The Cardinals would sweep the three-game set and assume first place for good. The Phillies still had a chance to force an unprecedented three-way tie for first after the Cardinals dropped the first two games of their last season series to the New York Mets. However, the Cardinals won their last game of the season, leaving the Phillies tied with the Reds for second place--just one game out of first.

After Mike Schmidt retired in 1989, the Phillies had a string of losing seasons, until their World Series berth in 1993. Beloved by their fans, this team, which included stars such as Darren Daulton, John Kruk, Lenny Dykstra, and Curt Schilling, surprised the city and the nation by going from last place in the National League East in 1992 to a 97-65 record and a division title. The team was often described as "shaggy," "unkempt," and "dirty." The previous year, noting the presence of the clean-cut Dale Murphy, Kruk himself described the team as "24 morons and one Mormon." Their character endeared them to fans, and attendance reached a record high the following season.

With the 1994 players' strike, most of the Phillies' fan base was greatly offended, and since then the team has had little success either on the field or at the gate. Both were negatively affected by the realignment of the Atlanta Braves into the National League East in 1994, as the Braves won the division every year until 2006, often by wide margins. Despite the relative lack of success, many current baseball stars rose to prominence during this era in Phillies history, including Scott Rolen, Bobby Abreu, Randy Wolf, Placido Polanco, and perhaps most notably Schilling.

    The team responded well to the changes. All-Star second baseman Chase Utley was free to bat third, and Ryan Howard batted cleanup; more importantly, they assumed a team leadership role along with shortstop Jimmy Rollins. On August 18, Gillick acquired veteran left-hander Jamie Moyer for the starting rotation. Immediately afterwards, and following a win over the Washington Nationals on August 29, the Phillies record stood at 66-65, trailing the San Diego Padres by a mere half game in the wild-card race. By September 24, the Phillies had captured and lost the wild-card lead and were tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers. With identical 82-74 records, both teams took to the road for the final six games, the Phillies to Washington and Florida, the Dodgers to Colorado and San Francisco. On September 30, both the Dodgers and Padres won their respective games and as a result, the Phillies were eliminated from playoff contention while two games behind with only one left to play.

Rollins also became the 4th player to have at least 20 home runs, 20 triples, 20 doubles, and 20 stolen bases in a season on September 30, securing the feat on the last day of the season with a sixth inning RBI triple.

On September 12, the Phillies were seven games behind the New York Mets in the National League East, and it appeared as if their division hopes were dashed. However, the Mets suffered an epic collapse on the likes of the "Phold of 1964," going 4-11 over the next fifteen games while the Phillies parried with a strong 12-3 record. The Phillies had defeated the Mets in eight consecutive encounters (between July 1, 2007 and September 16, 2007) and ultimately overtook the Mets by one game on September 28. The Phillies fell back into a first-place tie the following day with a Mets win and a Phillies loss, with only one game remaining in the regular season to decide the champion of the National League Eastern Division.

The Mets would lose their final game of the season while the Phillies won theirs, clinching the division for the Phillies for the first time in 14 years. The Phillies won the final game behind 44 year old Jamie Moyer, who in 1980 skipped a day of high school to attend that year's Phillies championship parade down Philadelphia's Broad Street.


After their historic comeback, they were swept in three games by the Colorado Rockies after losing 2-1 in Game 3 on October 6, 2007.

Even though the Phillies playoffs were a disappointment the Phillies have already started on there quest to next year by trading Michael Bourn, Geoff Geary, and Michael Costanzo for Astros closer Brad Lidge and Eric Bruntlett. They have also re-signed relief pitcher J.C. Romero to a three-year deal. And they have re-signed Manager Charlie Manuel and the rest of there staff.


Team uniform

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", though for interleague play the cap sports a blue visor with a blue star in the middle of the letter "P". The script "Phillies" and the red trim are similar to the style worn by the team during 1950 to 1969. [3] Year 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (link will display full 1992 Gregorian calendar). ...

Former Phillies Logo

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 darker red/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. 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, remains instantly recognizable and admired, long after its regular use has ended. It was while wearing this uniform/logo/color motif that the club achieved its most enduring success, including a World Series title in 1980 and another World Series appearance in 1983.[4] Its continued popularity with fans is evident, as even today Phillies home games can contain anywhere from a quarter to a third of the crowd sporting caps, shirts, and/or jackets emblazoned with the iconic "P" and burgundy color scheme. Occasionally the team plays in throwback uniforms that resemble the style. Image File history File links Maroon_P.png‎ sportslogos. ... Image File history File links Maroon_P.png‎ sportslogos. ...

Year 1991 (MCMXCI) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display the 1991 Gregorian calendar). ...


For a brief period in 1979, the Phillies front office modified the uniform into an all-burgundy version with white trimmings, to be worn for Saturday games. They were called "Saturday Night Specials". 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. [5] Also: 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins. ...


Another uniform controversy arose in 1994 when the Phillies introduced blue caps on Opening Day which were to be worn for home day games only. The caps were unpopular with the players, who considered them bad luck after two losses. The caps were dumped after being used on the field for a month.


Currently, during spring training (except for the 1992 to 1996 seasons, when they were still wearing leftover 70-91 inspired gear) the Phillies wear solid red practice jerseys with pinstriped pants for Grapefruit League home games, and solid blue batting practice jerseys with gray pants for away games. Starting next season the Phillies will have an alternate home jersey that features no pinstripes, and an alternate hat that's blue with a red beak and "P".

Fan support

Phillies fans have earned a reputation over the years for their generally rowdy behavior. In the 1960s, radio announcers for visiting teams would frequently report on the numerous fights breaking out in Connie Mack Stadium [citation needed]. Later, at Veterans Stadium, the notorious 700 Level gained a reputation for its "hostile taunting, fighting, public urination and general strangeness."

Memorable incidents include fans throwing batteries and booing J.D. Drew, the Phillies' No. 1 overall draft pick in 1997 who had gotten into a contract dispute with the team, and Dodgers pitcher Burt Hooton's poor showing in Game 3 of the 1977 NL Championship series, often attributed to the crowd's taunting. [7] Many sports writers have noted the passionate presence of Phillies fans, including Allen Barra, who wrote: "The biggest roar I ever heard out of 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.' The main point of winning the Phillies' only World Series trophy seemed to be as leverage for sticking it to New York."

Philadelphia Phillies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2496 words)
Founded in 1883 as the Philadelphia Quakers[1][2] (a name they held until 1890), the National League's Philadelphia Phillies are the longest-standing one-location team in all professional American sports.
The Phillies' resurgence in the early 1950s apparently tipped the scales in their favor, and the A's soon took the opportunity to head west, leaving the city's senior team as a solo act in Philly.
The Phillies' recent failures have contributed a resurgence in the belief of the Curse of Billy Penn.
