  • 1883-1901 Philadelphia Quakers/Phillies

    The Philadelphia Quakers of the National League completed their first season in 1883 with a record of 17-81; rookie pitcher John Coleman suffered 48 losses, a major league record that will probably never be beaten. Under the leadership of Manager Harry Wright, their fortunes improved, and they finished as high as second in 1887, and were third in 1885 and 1888. In the 1890s, the roster of the Phillies, as they became known, was bolstered by stars such as Ed Delahanty, Sam Thompson, Nap Lajoie, and Elmer Flick, yet they never finished higher than third place in that decade (1890, 1895, 1899). After another third place finish in 1900 followed by the loss of Lajoie to the American League in the off-season, the Phillies finished in second place in 1901, but then Delahanty and Flick (among others) jumped to the American League, and the National League was dominated by the Pirates, the Giants, and the Cubs for the rest of the decade. The Phillies did not win their first championship until 1915.

    Many photos of the Phillies from the period 1902-1917 are posted here: http://www.baseball-fever.com/showth...The-Early-Days

    1883 Philadelphia Quakers; 17-81, .173, 8th Place, 46 g behind

    Scorecards from the inaugural season.
    (Although the "Metropolitans" were an American Association team, I am inclined to think that this is a scorecard for the NL Quakers rather than the AA Athletics, because Recreation Park was the home field of the Quakers.)
