One of the oldest franchises in baseball, the Philadelphia Phillies have only one World Series title, but have featured some incredible players. Billy Hamilton, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Richie Ashburn, Pete Rose, Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton, Joe Morgan, Curt Schilling and Jim Thome have all played on the Phillies at one time or another. While the Phillies have underachieved for much of their history, all signs point to a Golden Age coming soon for the Fightin' Phils.
The Philadelphia Phillies were actually known as the Blue Jays in 1943 and 1944.
