Staff Guest Post: Calling All Die-Hard Phillies Phans!

Lauren headshot


Once again, we’re treated to a UDPL Staff Guest Post.  This time, Jack (aka Mr. Jack, to many children in the library) shares a special post all about an upcoming author visit.

I know, I know . . . it’s tough to get excited about our Phillies this season. Maybe they need to hit rock bottom before they start their climb back to the top. But here’s something about the Phillies to get excited about! Local author Ted Taylor has a new book out titled The 20th Century Phillies by the Numbers: You Can’t Tell the Players without a Scorecard. And on Wednesday evening, May 27, from 7:00-8:00, Ted will appear at the Upper Dublin Public Library to discuss his book, provide insider anecdotes in his persona as “the Glenside Kid,” and sign copies of his book which will be available to purchase.

Ted’s appearance promises to be a fun evening of good old baseball chatter with an emphasis on the Phillies and the different numbers worn by the players during the 20th Century (100 years yielding exactly 1 World Series title — ouch!) So whether your favorite Phillie was #1 Richie Ashburn, #20 Mike Schmidt, #36 Robin Roberts, or even #16 Cookie Rojas, be sure to share in the fun and nostalgia on May 27, and where else, but at UDPL!
