A Historic Day in Baseball and Sports

phills.pngMy favorite baseball team in my youth has reached a historic number. When I moved to TX in 1978, I refused to root for the Astros like the other turncoats in my family and remained a dedicated Phan of the Phillies well into the late-80s. During the 90s, Biggio & Bagwell won me over to my new-no-longer hometown team. Enough with personal information.

The Phillies have become the first franchise in the history of sports to accumulate 10,000 losses with their loss to the Cardinals Sunday night. They have been at it for 125 years and have a franchise record of 8,810 wins and 10,000 losses, which gives them the 10th most wins in history.

Way to go, Phils!
