The Philadelphia Phillies were established in 1883 replacing a team from Worcester, Mass., in the National League. To this day, the Phillies are the oldest, continuous, one-name, one-city American professional sports franchise.
The original team name was “Quakers,” which was the name of the group of people that had settled in what became Pennsylvania. In the team’s first season of play, the Quakers compiled a winning percentage of .173. It is still the worst season in franchise history.
The Phillies are featured on national broadcasts on ESPN, FOX Sports, and the MLB Network. In the Philadelphia area, fans can watch virtually the complete Phillies schedule on NBC Sports Philadelphia. Games are also available via live stream on the NBC Sports app or at MLB.TV.
HOME OF THE PHILLIES
With such a long history, the Phillies have had a few different homes through the years. The team spent 30-plus years at Connie Mack Stadium (1938-70) before another three decades-plus at Veterans Stadium (1971-2003).
The current Phillies home is Citizens Bank Park, which opened in 2004. It is located in the Philadelphia Sports Complex and includes venues for the city’s other professional sports teams. Citizens Bank Park seats 42,792 spectators for Phillies games.
The early Phillies struggled to find success. The franchise’s first taste of a championship came in 1915 when the team won the NL but lost in the World Series to Boston. Another MLB league championship would come in 1950, but the Phillies didn’t attain real success until the late 1970s.
The franchise has won 11 NL East Division titles, the first of which came in 1976. The Phillies won the division in 1976, 1977, 1978, 1980, 1983, 1993, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Philadelphia captured the NL pennant in 1915, 1950, 1980, 1983, 1993, 2008, and 2009.
The 1980 and 2008 teams were the only Phillies teams to win World Series championships.
BEST OF THE PHILLIES
The earliest of stars for the Phillies was pitcher Robin Roberts, who played 14 years in Philadelphia. He was a seven-time All-Star, a four-time MLB wins leader, and twice was the MLB strikeout leader. All were accomplished as a member of the Phillies. Roberts, who won 286 career games, is only MLB pitcher to beat the Braves when they were in Boston, Milwaukee, and Atlanta.
During the Phillies great success of the late 1970s and early 1980s, left-handed pitcher Steve Carlton was a big reason why Philadelphia was so good. After winning a World Series while in St. Louis, Carlton played 15 seasons in Philadelphia. He helped the Phillies win the 1980 World Series. Carlton was a seven-time All-Star selection for the Phillies and he won the NL Cy Young Award four times (1972, 19977, 1980, and 1982). Carlton won 329 games in his career and remains fourth all-time in strikeouts.
Carlton’s teammate, third baseman Mike Schmidt, was part of a powerful Phillies offense at the time. Schmidt was also part of the 1980 World Series team. He was a 12-time All-Star and won the NL MVP three times (1980, 1981, and 1986). He is considered one of the greatest third basemen off all-time. He was just as good in the field – 10 Gold Glove Awards – as he was at the plate. Schmidt led the NL in home runs in eight different seasons and finished his career with 548.
