Since their formation in 1883 the Philadelphia Phillies have played more than 19,000 games. THE ESSENTIAL GAMES OF THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES, a phantastic 4-disc set, celebrates four remarkable games spanning four decades of Phillies pennants, champions, and spectacular victories. From Hall of Famers Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton to contemporary fan favorites Ryan Howard and Roy Halladay, these games highlight Philadelphia’s baseball heroes and their winning on-field exploits since the team’s 1980 World Championship. The set, which also features radio play-by-play allowing fans the ability to listen to the original radio calls, will be available for $39.95srp in stores, including the team store, and at Phillies.com on August 14.
Showcasing powerful batting lineups, stellar pitching, and the energizing spirit of Philadelphia’s passionate, full-throated fan base, this time-capsule salute begins with the Phillies 1980 National League pennant clincher accomplished by one of the most decorated teams in history, and eventual World Series winners. The second game, more than a decade later, showcases the relentless and colorful 1993 pennant-winning club which pummeled the National League. Then, with the start of a new century the Phillies found a new home and were crowned champions again in 2008, with the final World Series game preserved in this set. The closing game is an extraordinary, historic performance — Roy Halladay’s no-hitter in the 2010 NLDS — only the second postseason no-hitter in history.
