Today I'm kickin' it old school, so old school that the Athletics were still in town. With a name like David Earl Philley, you know the man had to call the City of Brotherly Love home for part of his career. In fact, Philly was his stomping grounds for 2 periods during his 18 seasons in the bigs. He first sprung into action with the Philadelphia A's back in 1951 and roamed the outfield at Shibe Park for them until 1953. Then again in 1958 Philley broke out with an extreme case of Philadelphia Phever and came back to the city to play for the Phils in Connie Mack Stadium until 1960, totaling 6 seasons in Philly during his MLB employment. He was never really a star player, but he did collect 1700 hits with a .270 batting average. He also made stops at Chicago, Cleveland, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, and San Francisco. Being a stud player is never important to WSBGM's when doing a phlashback, we just care that they made an impression, and Philley in Philly certainly did.
