Shibe Park Another one of baseball's famous stadiums that is no longer standing: Shibe Park in Philadelphia. Built in 1909, it was the home of the American League's Philadelphia Athletics until the team relocated to Kansas City in 1955. The park underwent one name change in its history. It was renamed Connie Mack Stadium to honor the longtime owner and manager of the A's. The National League's Phillies became the tenants after the A's left Philadelphia. It was their home ballpark until 1970.

Bill Lee Postgame Interview 1979 Bill (Spaceman) Lee of the Montreal Expos is interviewed on the field after pitching a shutout versus the Philadelphia Phillies at Olympic Stadium on May 30, 1979. The quirky, free-spirited Lee had grown a beard after being acquired by the Expos. Lee was an integral part of the three Expos clubs (1979, 1980, and 1981) that came oh so close to winning the National League pennant.

Eddie Waitkus Shooting 1949 Ballplayer Eddie Waitkus was the shooting victim of an obsessed female fan. Waitkus had broken into the National League with the Chicago Cubs in 1941 but was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1949. Nineteen-year-old Ruth Ann Steinhagen of Chicago had become obsessed with Waitkus as a 14-year-old. When he was traded to the Phillies, she snapped. During a Phillies' road trip to Chicago on June 14, 1949, Steinhagen checked into the Edgewater Beach Hotel where the Phillies were staying. She left a note for Waitkus to come to her hotel room to discuss urgent business. Believing the note to be from a friend of a friend, Waitkus arrived at Steinhagen's room and was invited in. Steinhagen briefly excused herself and returned with a rifle. Steinhagen blurted, 'You're not going to bother me anymore!' Then she shot Waitkus in the chest and calmly phoned the hotel's front desk to report the shooting. Waitkus nearly died on the operating table several times, but pulled through. He continued his major league career until 1955. Steinhagen was never charged with a crime. Instead she was committed to a mental institution. After three years she was deemed sane and released. Waitkus' shooting inspired Bernard Malamud's story 'The Natural.' Waitkus died in 1972, at age 53, of esophogeal cancer. Steinhagen is said to still live on Chicago's north side.

1950 World Series - Yankees vs Phillies The 2009 World Series was a rematch of the 1950 World Series. That year the New York Yankees swept the Philadelphia Phillies in four straight games. The 1950 Phillies managed just five runs in the entire series. Some trivia from that one-sided Fall Classic: The Phillies failed to hit a home run. No other team since then has gone an entire World Series without hitting a home run. There were no black players on either team, making it the last all-white World Series.

Steve Carlton Underwear Ad A few months ago I posted a Jockey underwear magazine ad from 1977 featuring Pete Rose. Here's another hideous ad from that series. This one features Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Steve Carlton. Would any male be caught dead in those undergarments?
