  • This Day In Sports History (May 23rd) — Tommy Greene

    This Day In Sports History (May 23rd) — Tommy Greene

    It was on this day in 1991 that Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Tommy Greene recorded a no-hitter against the Montreal Expos.  The Phillies would go on to win that game by a score of 2-0. Greene struck out ten batters and walked seven in the game.  At the age of 24, he was beginning to show […]

  • Ben Revere’s Diving Catch is Something to Behold (Video + GIF)

    Ben Revere’s Diving Catch is Something to Behold (Video + GIF)

    Most people will probably say that Ben Revere‘s diving overhead catch to rob Todd Frazier of extra bases during yesterday’s game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds is an early candidate for “catch of the year” honors.  I, on the other hand, would suggest that we just give the dude the award now. […]

    Drunk Phillies Fan Gets Branded with Hot Spatula While Tailgating (Video)

    Phillies fans are known for being pretty wild, violent, and obnoxious inside the ballpark. However, they do a pretty good job of letting loose outside the ballpark, too. Obviously, I’m talking about their penchant for extreme tailgating. You see, Phillies fans don’t just sit around, drink a few beers and flip some burgers before a […]

    Hooters Ball Girl Picks Up Fair Ball, Gives it to a Fan (Video)

    It seems as though every year, you can count on us to provide our readers with at least one update on the Hooters ball girls that can be seen patrolling the foul grounds during Philadelphia Phillies spring training contests. For the first few years, it seemed as though everyone was impressed with these ball-chasing beauties, […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/17/12 — Cliff Lee

    The Philadelphia Phillies entered the 2012 MLB season with the highest of expectations, but they have failed to live up to those expectations, as they were one game below the .500 mark heading into last night’s game against the New York Mets.  But despite their struggles, they were still only four games back of the […]

    Drunk Phillies Fan Faceplants Into Asphalt (Video)

      Everyone enjoys making fun of drunken sports fans. They perform funny dances, they pass out in their seats, they fall down, they run out onto the field (and get tackled by security), and, of course, they wet their pants. Usually the drunk fans we make fun of actually make it into the game. But […]

    Jayson Werth Makes A Nice Barehanded Catch (Video)

    Most broadcast booths around Major League Baseball contain at least one former ballplayer, because of the idea that they can provide insights into the game that us regular folks never could. In reality, of course, they mostly just complain about how today’s players just don’t play the game “the right way.” And by “the right […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 8/13/12 — Cole Hamels

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/13/12 — Cole Hamels

    It took Cole Hamels until August 7th to record his first complete-game shutout of the season.  It didn’t take him nearly as long to record his second. Hamels earned the “Stat Line of the Night” during his last outing, as he allowed just five hits and no earned runs during the Phillies’ 3-0 victory over […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/7/12 — Cole Hamels

    The Philadelphia Phillies have been having themselves a terrible season by their standards, but for Phillies fans who are looking to take something positive away from 2012, they need not look any further than Cole Hamels’ performance on the mound. Hamels has been having himself a solid 2012 campaign, and it continued last night against […]
