For the first time since 1980 and for only the second time in franchise history, the Philadelphia Phillies are the world champions of baseball after beating the Tampa Bay Rays, 4-3, at Citizens Bank Park on October 29, 2008. The Phils won the best-of-seven series in five games.

The victory also gives Philadelphia its first major professional sports title since 1983, when the Sixers won the NBA championship.

Savor this, Philly fans…you deserve this.

And congratulations to Charlie Manuel and the 2008 Fightin’ Phils! Thank you very much for this.

  1. Congratulations. Though I’ve never been a Philly fan of any sport (coming from North Jersey, we are all NY fans of some sort), I am happy for you guys. My old college roommate is probably so happy that he popped a blood vessel in his eye.
