Product description

The ultimate reference book for any "Phillie phanatic," this book provides a behind-the-scenes peek into the private world of the players, managers, broadcasters, and executives, taking readers into the clubhouse and onto the field. Author Robert Gordon takes fans inside the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies' run to the World Series, when first baseman John Kruk once told a fan, "I ain't an athlete, lady, I'm a baseball player;" back to 1980, when Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton, and Larry Bowa delivered the team's first World Series title; and to 2008, when a new generation experienced the ecstasy of a World Series win. Written for every fan who follows the Phillies, this unique book captures the memories and great stories from more than a century of the team's history.
