Overview

Chris Wheeler is coming up on his 40th year working for the Philadelphia Phillies, the last 33 as a widely recognized television and radio broadcaster. He is one of the few people in the Phillies to have participated in both championship seasons - 1980 and 2008.

As Tim McCarver points out in his Foreword, Chris Wheeler is accomplished at telling stories. From his first experience behind a mike at Penn State in the 1960s to his reflections on the Phillies' ring ceremony at the Ball Park on April 8, 2009, "Wheels" can paint word pictures like few broadcasters in any sport. His View from the Booth encompasses memorable portraits of people and places you're invited to share, all the highs and lows of nearly four decades with the never-boring Philadelphia Phillies.

    Great gift for an old time Phillies Fan

    Bought this as a gift for a friend who celebrated a birthday during the playoffs this year (2009). He was born and raised in Philly and though he has lived in California and now in Colorardo, remains one of the Phillies biggest fans. HE LOVED THE BOOK!!! I can't say much more other than if you have a Phillies mega-fan in your life, you can't go wrong with this book as a gift - it will be much appreciated.
