Relive the greatest moments of one of baseball’s oldest, most-storied teams. With vintage photography and action shots of today’s stars, sportswriter Ron Green, Jr., takes us through the Fightin’ Phils’ colorful history. From their humble beginnings at Baker Bowl and their first pennant win in 1915 to the Phillies’ world championships in 1980 and 2008, Green recounts more than a century of glory and heartbreak that has defined a franchise.
 
From Grover Cleveland Alexander to Richie Ashburn, from Mike Schmidt to Larry Bowa, plus Ryan Howard, Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, and the rest of the remarkable 2008 championship team, the Phillies have provided the baseball heartbeat to generations of fans in a region that takes its baseball as seriously as it does its pretzels and cheesesteaks.
 
With an appreciation of the past, a sense of the present, and with a dose of the Phillie Phanatic thrown in, 101 Reasons to Love the Phillies cites the many glorious reasons why Philadelphia stands by its baseball treasure.
