Overview

Founded in 1883, the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team is the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional sports.

The Phillies are part of the National League East division.

Fans can catch all the home runs, all the diving catches and all the fan giveaways — not to mention the always-spirited Philly Phanatic — at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies have won two World Series championships and seven National League pennants.

The History

The Philadelphia Phillies have played in several parks, including theBaker Bowl from 1887 to 1938 and Shibe Park/Connie Mack Stadium from 1938 to 1970.

The Phillies are the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional sports.

In 1971, the Phillies moved to Veterans’ Stadium in South Philadelphia, where the team hosted two All-Star games and three World Series. It’s also where the team captured the crown in 1980.

After 30 years the Phillies said goodbye to the Vet at the end of the 2003 season. The team now plays at Citizens Bank Park, which opened in 2004.

It may have taken 28 years, but the Phillies once again reclaimed the World Series crown against the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008.
