For 25 years, Philadelphia waited for a team like the 2008 Phillies to come along. Waited for a team that could end the longest title drought of any city in America that fields teams in all four major pro sports. And then these Phillies made it happen, winning the NL East, then beating the Brewers, the Dodgers, and finally, the Rays, in the World Series. As the two million fans who attended the championship parade can attest, it was worth the wait. Hardcover, 218 pages.
