20 Years Since 20 Played

Twenty years ago tomorrow, Mike Schmidt delivered a touching speach, announcing his retirement from baseball. That's twenty years since a Hall of Famer has played for the Phillies.

As a salute to Schmitty, I'll be waking up quite early in the morning and at 5:48 AM, I will blow my car horn 20 times as a salute to Michael Jack Schmidt. If 20 and 548 don't ring a bell, that's Schmidt's jersey number and how many homers Schmidt hit in his legendary career. Please join PhoulBallz.com and toot your own horn, along with us.

*DISCLAIMER* PhoulBallz is not responsible if you wake up your neighbors and they beat you with a Louisville Slugger as though they were Michael Jack and you were a Rick Reuschel curveball.





"I could ask the Phillies to keep me on to add to my statistics, but my love for
the game won't let me do that."
-Mike Schmidt
