The oldest continuous one-name, one-city franchise in the major leagues, the Phillies have a checkered history in which victories have been far less common than defeats, trades - both good and bad - have become legendary, and extraordinary plays and players have ranked with baseball's best.
Now in an expanded and updated third edition, published to coincide with a new Phillies era at Citizens Bank Park, The Phillies Encyclopedia, Third Edition, will recall the team's storied past for old fans, and help young fans relive the worst and best of one of America's greatest ball clubs.

A new book for a new ballparkFrom the Inside Flap:
"What a way to bring in 2004! With state-of-the-art Citizens Bank Park and The Phillies Encyclopedia, Rich Westcott and Frank Bilovsky have captured the 121 years of Phillies baseball history with painstaking research, hundreds of interviews, and a love and devotion of the Fightin' Phils and baseball."
—From the Foreword by Harry Kalas
"All baseball fans, especially Phillies fans, should read this Phillies Encyclopedia. It is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive and best-researched history of Phillies baseball ever written. Frank Bilovsky and Rich Westcott are to be commended for writing what was obviously a labor of love. I have been associated with the Phillies organization as a player and broadcaster for 45 years. I loved the book. And I know you will love it also."
—the late Richie Ashburn
"The authors have every right to use the word 'encyclopedia'...for the breadth of information contained herein is tremendous. The book doesn't provide stats on hot dog and souvenir sales at Veterans Stadium but that's about all that's left out....A fantastic feast for Philly fans!"
"The New Phillies Encyclopedia is the finest and most complete book about any team in sports. The pictures are excellent. This book is a must for any real baseball fan."
—Allen Lewis, former Philadelphia Inquirer sportswriter and member of the writer's wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame
