<P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" class=MsoNormal>Over the last half-century, the Philadelphia Phillies have experienced epic highs—World Series titles in 1980 and 2008—and frustrating lows, and Larry Shenk has been there for every minute of it. He provides a behind-the-scenes look at the personalities and events that have shaped the franchise’s history. The book gives the detailed scouting reports on Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley and takes readers into the clubhouse as Steve Carlton closes in on 300 career wins. Listen in on Pete Rose’s phone call with President Reagan after Rose broke the National League hits record and see Richie Ashburn’s face when he heard he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Giving fans a taste of what it’s like to be a part of the Phillies’ storied history from a perspective unlike any other, readers will also learn about a man whose work ethic and character has made an impact on the players and staff for 50 years.
