Record Decade, Season
Just think, Paul Hoover’s walk-off single completed the Phillies first decade of the 21st century!
What a decade it has been for the Phillies. They won 850 games, more than any other decade in their storied history (1970s produced 812 wins). The average number of wins per season (85) is also best in club history (81 in 1970s). Their winning percentage (.525) ranks second to the 1890s (.536).
The season also was a record-setter at the gate:
**3,600,693 season total at home.
**44,450 average per game.
**42 consecutive sellouts.
**30 engagements during games.
There’s little doubt that Phillies fans are very passionate about their team and Citizens Bank Park.
So, a huge THANK YOU!
