Back in 2004, I was living in baseball-less Washington, DC and had no quality Phillies news readily available. I decided to take it upon myself to start something I would enjoy reading. Thankfully, over a decade later Phillies Nation is still my go-to source for news and analysis on the Phils.
Thanks to all the writers, reporters, commenters, readers, viewers and fans for your support over the past 14 years. Phillies Nation has grown and thrived because of people like you who are dedicated not just to winning a World Series, but to enjoying the journey with fellow fans. Go Phils!
To wrap up our annual Anniversary Post, as always, we leave you with the very first article posted on Phillies Nation. Do you remember this day?
Milton Perfect though 8 1/3
What a game! Supurb pitching by Eric Milton, and Doug Glanville won’t have anything funny to say about this nailbiter. Phils funnyman nearly cost his team the win, which brings the unoffical total of 5 defensive mistakes in centerfield in the past week.
It was nice to see the Phillies’ young stars, Ryan Madson and Chase Utley, perform well today. Utley had the Phils first two RBIs including a HR. Smoltz just got the save up in New York, that means the Fightins’ are still a half game out.
