| /

The Philadelphia Phillies, one of the oldest teams in Major League Baseball, have maintained a strong, loyal fan base for over 125 years. Despite historic set backs, the franchise has proven resilient and evolved into a perennial contender with consistently large attendance figures. In fact, the Phillies claim 37 Hall of Famers, two World Series championships, seven National League pennants, and nine division titles. The Philadelphia Phillies chronicles the greatness of Grover Cleveland Alexander, the remarkable career of Richie Ashburn, the perfection of Jim Bunning, and the teams of success and luster as well as those shining stars of the less successful eras.

enjoyable but a bit disorganized

I read the book cover to cover and enjoyed the photos (many of them rare) and captions. The chapters were a bit disorganized, not always in chronological order, and the photos and information were definitely skewed toward early Phillies history. There probably as many photos from the 1910s as there were from 1970 to 2010. The chapter on stadiums was fascinating and a strong point of the book. But as far as players, the book was far from definitive, more like a light sampling.
