We Should Be GM's is proud to present our first contest- 101 Reasons to Love the Phillies book giveaway. Author, Robert Green Jr., did a tremendous job spanning generations of Phillies teams, from the Whiz Kids to Macho Row, the Phanatic to Ashburn Alley: they’re all here in one hardcover that takes you from the Phillies’ first pennant win in 1915 up to the world championships in 1980 and 2008. This compact trivia book is filled with vintage photos and nostalgic memorabilia alongside facts, stats, and action shots of today’s stars.
