From Shibe Park to "The Vet" to the Philly Fanatic, this is the ultimate trivia book and crossword pacakge all rolled into one. So get your soft pretzel and settle in for a lot of baseball fun.

The Philadelphia Phillies are a major League Baseball team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and are the reigning 2008 World Series champions. The Phillies are a member of the East Divison of Major

League Baseball's National League. Since 2004, the team's home has been Citizens Bank Park in

South Philadelphia section of the city.

The Phillies have won two World Series championships(against Kansas City in 1980 and Tampa Bay in

2008) and six National League pennants. The franchise has also experienced long periods of struggle. The age of the team combined with its history of adversity has earned them the distinction of having lost the most games of any team in the history of Major League Baseball. The Phillies are also the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of American professional sports.Phillies who have been inducted into the Hall-of Fame include: While not all of these players were enshrined with a Phillies cap, each of them was a part of the Phillies franchise at one point in his career.
