6.14.14 - Jimmy Rollins set the Phillies all time hits record, surpassing Mike Schmidt, in today’s win over the Cubs. His record breaking 2,235th hit came in the 5th inning with a single to right field. Mike Schmidt came out to congratulate Jimmy after the hit followed by all of his teammates. Congrats Jimmy, this is a well deserved milestone!

I love playing baseball in Citizens Bank Park. I love playing in front of the Philly fans. There’s no better place to play in my opinion. Obviously winning is important and I would like to do that in Philadelphia …

I haven’t ever envisioned leaving Philadelphia, honestly. I feel like I’m wanted in Philly. I feel like the fans appreciate the way I play. I feel like the front office appreciates the way I play and I appreciate their support over the years. I don’t plan on going anywhere, but again, if someone comes up to me and says, ‘You’re no longer wanted in Philly,’ then I’ll have to change my tune … I’ve talked to guys who have played for the Phillies and gone on to other organizations and the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

08/27/2014 - The Philadelphia Phillies honor the Taney Dragons for their remarkable run in the Little League World Series. Taney captured the hearts of not only Philadelphians but the rest of the country as they made their way to Williamsport. The inner city team is filled with such diverse, likable young kids and really made their mark in baseball history as the first Philadelphia team to make it to the LLWS. Mo’ne Davis became only the 18th girl to play in the series and the first girl to ever throw a complete game shutout and earn a win. She is also the first little leaguer to ever be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. These kids made the entire city proud and we hope that this ride has been just as fun for them as it has been for us. Go Taney!
