Audible Editor Reviews

Narrator Scott Pollak's guy-next-door delivery will make listeners feel like they're hanging out with a good friend after a game, trading stories of the oddballs that have populated the Phillies. It's been said that in the 1990s, while other teams led the league in players with character, the Phillies led the circuit in characters. Phillies historian Rich Westcott does not disappoint, sharing some of the funniest and most tragic stories from this team's 120-year history.

Although the Phillies have suffered indignities like no other team, like losing 23 games in a row, Pollak manages to inject a rueful, self-effacing positivity into these anecdotes - a mixture of emotions that Phillies fans will surely find familiar and appreciate.

Publisher's Summary

The best stories about one of baseball's most colorful teams - updated to include their recent glory years.

Since 1883, the Philadelphia Phillies have been up, down, and all around. Most recently, thanks to Charlie Manuel, the Phillies have become a National League powerhouse, with four NL East titles, two pennants and the 2008 World Series championship to show for it. In Tales from the Philadelphia Phillies Dugout Rich Westcott takes listeners behind the scenes into the glorious, quirky, and victorious stories that make this team the legend it is.

    "Enjoyable for the average Phillies fan"

    Overall the book was pretty good. Definitely enjoyed the early history of the Phillies the most, wish he would have gone into greater detail about the present day Phillies, didn't have many stories for the present day Phillies either. Not the greatest written book, structure wise, that I've ever read or listened to, but was entertaining enough to listen to on the way to and from work. Would definitely recommend if you're looking a book as a Phillies fan, but it's not going to be something you tell people is a must read, or in this case listen. Also, didn't care for the author's obvious bias on certain baseball traditions, such as the All Star game.
