In 2014, Ian Riccaboni and the Lehigh Valley TV crew sat down with Phillies’ legend Curt Simmons to discuss his 13+ season career with the Phillies! Curt is a local hero in the Lehigh Valley and ranks fifth among Phillies in wins, sixth in starts, fifth in innings pitched, and eighth in strikeouts!
In this very special, first-ever Throwback Thursday edition of the Phillies Nation Podcast, we bring you this interview uncut for the first time. Only portions had aired on Comcast SportsNet and Comcast Network. Simmons was a key member of the 1950 Whiz Kids and their run to the pennant but was not able to play in the World Series! Find out where he was as well as the time Babe Ruth was his coach!
