Synopsis: I never chose to be a Philadelphia Phillies baseball fan. I was born into it. My father, Fred Shields, was like most Philadelphians, an avid Phillies fan for as long as he could remember. Starting in the 1930s, dad seemed to follow every Phillies game, pitch by pitch. And after he returned from World War II and married mom, he even taught her how to keep the score of games when he had to work nights. He would take the Route 22 bus, which rolled along Lehigh Avenue to 22nd Street and our city's monolith to baseball, Connie Mack Stadium, originally called Shibe Park. And when I was old enough, a little taller than the knees on dad's 6-feet-3 frame, he would take me with him. Most trips ended in futility, a Phillies loss. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost more games-over 10,000-than any other team in American sports history.
