162-0: IMAGINE A PHILLIES PERFECT SEASON

By Paul Kurtz/Foreword by Ruben Amaro Jr.

 

CONTACT: Bill Ames, Triumph Books, 312.252.1248, b.ames@triumphbooks.com

 

Even the greatest baseball teams lose 30 percent or more of their games each season.  The Philadelphia Phillies have put together some very impressive regular season records in recent history, including their World Series championship team in 2008; however, they still only won 56.8% percent of their games during that triumphant season.

 

But imagine, Philly fans, a year in which the Phils never lose a single game.  An undefeated regular season including a season-long sweep of the hated Braves and Mets...perfection at its greatest!  Author and Philadelphia radio personality Paul Kurtz envisions just that in his new book 162-0: Imagine a Phillies Perfect Season.

 

Kurtz chronicles the most memorable victories on each and every single day of the baseball calendar season in this outstanding reference book on the most important wins in Phillies history on each day of the baseball season, including:

 

  • Opening Day at Veterans Stadium in '74 with two star pitchers and a Mike Schmidt homer
  • The Phils and Cubs epic 23-22 slugfest at Wrigley Field in May 1979
  • Mike Schmidt joining the 500 home run club in 1987
  • Roy Halladay's perfect game on May 29, 2010 in Florida
  • Jim Bunning's perfect game - the first ever for a Philly - in June 1964
  • The double-header against the Padres that ended at 5:00 a.m. the next morning in July 1993

 

Ranging from games with incredible historical significance to great individual Philly achievements, 162-0: Imagine a Phillies Perfect Season is a classic must-have for fans that reflects back on the greatest moments in Philadelphia Phillies lore and ponders the impossible...a perfect season both at Citizens Bank Park and on the road.

 

About the author: A 32 year broadcast veteran, Paul Kurtz has been a mainstay at KYW Newsradio in Philadelphia since 1985. A journalism major at Temple University, he began his career at WBCB in Levittown. At age 24, Kurtz moved to Washington to become a morning drive anchor and reporter for the award-winning news team at WASH-FM. He returned to Philadelphia in 1984 and moved to KYW the next year. In his time there, Kurtz has won numerous awards, including the prestigious Edward R. Murrow National Award for reporting.  He resides in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with his wife, Kim Glovas (who also reports for KYW), four boys, Luc, Chris, Pete and Eli and two cats, Lucy and Mr. Chibs. In his spare time he coaches youth baseball and basketball.
