This Week In Baseball History

Sep 19, 2018

The Phillies were printing World Series tickets and Vegas had stopped taking bets on the outcome of the National League race when the Phillies began an epic collapse 64 years ago this week that saw them blow a 6.5 game lead with 12 to play. Michael Baumann (@MJ_Baumann) joins Mike and Bill this week to catalogue Gene Mauch's descent into madness, and the reasons for the Phillies' phall from the top of the standings. Also, happy birthday to Frank Schulte and Dan Haren!
