This Day in Philadelphia Sports offers a concise 366-day approach to looking back at the history of Philadelphia sports. Every day on the calendar is represented with a fun tidbit of information of what had happened on that specific date in the history of one of the greatest sports towns in the world, Philadelphia, PA.
Every page is filled with the recounting of specific events from the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, and 76ers, as well as the local college and high school sports teams. The authors incorporate fun facts, specific information, and thoroughly researched statistical data into each entry.
From the inception of the Penn Relays in 1895 to the Eagles Nick Foles' record-tying performance in 2013, this book covers it all. Relive the evening in late October of 2008 when the Phillies captured their second World Series title or Allen Iverson's 55-point showing against the Hornets in the first game of the 2003 playoffs. The authors take you through the greatest moments in Philadelphia sports history, as well as those moments when the pain of being a sports fan is in full force in the City of Brotherly Love. It's all here, in This Day in Philadelphia Sports.
