Occasional Glory: The History of the Philadelphia Phillies
by David M. Jordan
Book Description: The Philadelphia Phillies have lost more games and finished in last place more times than any other major league club. The lost seasons have established their reputation as one of the most unsuccessful teams ever to take the fieldóbut even so the Phillies have had some unforgettable players and notable triumphs throughout their history.

This work is a history of the Philadelphia Phillies baseball club from its inception in 1883, when the Worcester (Massachusetts) Brown Stockings moved to Philadelphia, through the 2000 season, 118 years later. It covers the teamís finer seasons, moments, and players, including the great outfield of the 1890s, which was perhaps one of the best in big league history, Grover Cleveland Alexander and the 1915 pennant winner, Chuck Kleinís slugging feats, Roberts, Ennis, and Ashburn, the era of Gene Mauch, Jim Bunning and the heartbreak of the lost pennant in 1964, Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton and the 1980 World Series championship, and the surprise pennant win in 1993. The book also covers the less than memorable times that are all too familiar to the fans. The teamís relationship with the city of Philadelphia is also discussed at length.

More than Beards, Bellies and Biceps: The Story of the 1993 Phillies
by Robert Gordon, Tom Burgoyne
Book Description: Stubble scruffed up their chins. Tobacco wads ballooned their cheeks. The '93 Phils had the look of a slow-pitch softball team itching to kick some serious butt. They did kick butt, too, on and off the field. "They lived the life of professional baseball players as fully as it can be done," manager Jim Fregosi says. Though they weren't a photogenic bunch, their mugs were everywhere, on Baseball Today, on the Letterman Show, on Saturday Night Live (Chris Farley made a helluva John Kruk). Even President Clinton quipped about them. A gang of baseball throwbacks, they quickly seduced the hometown fans. By season's end, they won over the rest of the country, too. America's Most Wanted Team became America's Team in a heart-thumping fall classic against Toronto. The '93 Phils drew more spectators than any other Philadelphia franchise in the city's century-and-a-quarter of professional sports. Here's the story of a team that burned the candle at both ends and lit up a city like a firecracker.

Tales from the Phillies Dugout
by Rich Westcott
Book Description: In the 120 years of the Philadelphia Phillies, there is one unavoidable description of the franchise. It was often last, but seldom dull. This is a club, after all, that once had a lefthanded catcher named Jack Clements. Bill Hulen was a shortstop. He was also lefthanded. The Phillies had a pitcher who was aptly nicknamed "Boom Boom" Beck and third baseman Mike Schmidt once tried to disguise himself by wearing a wig onto the field. Many of the stories in Tales from the Phillies Dugout head in the direction of being humorous. A few are more serious. Some are even tragic. All in all, this is a book about a franchise that has overflowed with colorful characters and the strange, the odd, and the outrageous events with which they've been connected.
