Phillies World Series History – 1980, 2008, And More – A Guide
Phillies World Series appearances had been relatively few, prior to 2008. Until that season, the team – a charter member of the National League - had won just five pennants. They were the last of the original 16 major league baseball teams to win a World Series, finally doing so, in 1980.
However, there have now been Phillies World Series appearances in the last two seasons (2008 and 2009), with the Phillies winning the World Series in 2008. It was the first Phillies World Series championship in 28 years, since 1980. In 2009, the team captured the National League pennant for the second straight season, for the first time in franchise history, before falling to the New York Yankees in six games.
