Seventy Sixers!

Last night, a couple of us went down to the Wells Fargo center to welcome Game 3 of the first round playoff series to Philadelphia.  Heading into last night’s match, the Sixers trailed 2-0…

  

Despite the outcome, just being in the arena and in the playoff atmosphere really got us amped up over the 76ers and after digging into our archives found some great memorabilia, articles and photos around the office.  Enjoy!

Celebrate The Start of Spring Training!

People ask me what I do in the winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.
—Rogers Hornsby


Pitchers and catchers are reporting to spring training today and following closely behind are the positon players, who are required to report in two weeks. We thought we'd kick off the beginning of spring training with the release of the Mitchell & Ness No Hitter Tee! Check out some of your favorite teams below:

 

New York Yankees No Hitter Tee Boston Red Sox No Hitter Tee

Chicago Cubs No Hitter Tee Philadelphia Phillies No Hitter Tee

Hall of Famed Birthdays

On this date in history, two Philadelphia baseball legends were born…about 82 years apart.  These men held crucial roles in both the development and success of professional baseball in Philadelphia. 

 

December 22, 1862:  Cornelius McGillicuddy, or Connie Mack, as he is better known, was born in Massachusetts.  Despite having a 10-season catching career, Mack’s legacy was constructed throughout his 53 years as a manager and team executive.  After managing the Pittsburgh Pirates (1894-1896) and the Milwaukee Brewers (1897-1900), Mack landed in Philadelphia, where he would remain for more than 50 years.  From 1901 through 1950, Connie Mack was the manager and part-owner of the Philadelphia Athletics (he became a full owner and partner to Ben Shibe in 1913 and became sole owner of the team in 1936). Throughout his tenure, Connie racked up an amazing list of accomplishments.  Although there are many more, here is a brief list of his career highlights and awards:

 

·    Won nine American League Pennants

·    Appeared in eight World Series, winning five (1910, 1911, 1913, 1929, 1930)

·    Most managerial wins, losses and games managed in major league history

·    Known as the ‘Tall Tactician’ for his intelligent and innovative managing style

·    Managed renowned players such as Eddie Plank, Eddie Collins, Ty Cobb, Al Simmons and Jimmie Foxx

·    The Philadelphia stadium, Shibe Park, was renamed Connie Mack Stadium in 1953 and remained so even after the A’s departure to Kansas City, making Connie Mack Stadium the home of the Philadelphia Phillies until 1970

·    Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937  

 

December 22, 1944:  Steve Carlton was born in Miami.  Carlton first signed with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1965 and stayed with the team before being traded to Philadelphia before the 1972 season for pitcher Rick Wise.  He remained with the Phillies until 1986 and stayed in the league for another three seasons.  As a Phillie, Carlton was a fan-favorite and quickly became known as ‘Lefty’.  He set numerous records and is regarded as one of the best pitchers in Phillies’ history.  Here are some of his accomplishments:

 

·    Ten-time All-Star (1968, 1969, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1977, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982)

·    Two-time World Series Champion (1967 with the Cardinals and 1980 as a Phillie)

·    Gold Glove Award Winner (1981)

·    Four-time National League Cy Young Award winner (1972, 1977, 1980, 1982)

·    Number 32 retired by the Phillies in 1989

·    In 1999, he ranked number 30 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players

·    Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994

We can’t think of a better way to honor these two Philadelphia favorites than by owning a piece of their legacy with an authentic Mitchell & Ness jersey!
