Schilling leads candidates for 2012 Wall of Fame

Though one name went on the Phillies Wall of Fame last season, two names were crossed off the ballot. John Kruk was the latest name to be added to the Phillies’ prestigious club. He was the second member of the 1993 Phillies in as many years (Darren Daulton in 2010) to be honored. Now, a … Continue reading Schilling leads candidates for 2012 Wall of Fame

Ruiz takes one in the juevos

I really shouldn’t joke about that seeing as I’ve felt that pain many a time playing contact sports. Carlos Ruiz is out of today’s line up with a left (*cringes*) testicle contusion. Yea, you heard that right and I’m sure all of my male readers are groaning and crying just like I am while I … Continue reading Ruiz takes one in the juevos

Hottest Start Since ’93

1993 was such a magical year for the Phillies. Granted I was only five, I still knew who these players were, idolizing Pete Incaviglia.

FIM #11: Goodbye Vet

A brand new era deserves a brand new stadium. But with bringing in a newer, fresher experience for the fans and players comes the sacrifices of memories and traditions. Moment #11 is the destruction of our beloved Veterans Stadium. Built in 1971, The Vet was home to the infamous “Boo Birds” (Eagles fans) and the … Continue reading FIM #11: Goodbye Vet
