Summary

This Day in Philadelphia Sports, first published in 2014 and now newly updated in paperback to cover Super Bowl LII, Villanova basketball's latest championships, and more, offers a concise 366-day approach to looking back at the history of Philadelphia sports. Every day on the calendar is represented with a fun tidbit of information on what has happened on that specific day, over the years, in the history of one of the greatest sports towns in the world: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Every page is filled with accounts of specific events from the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, and 76ers, as well as the local college and high school sports teams. The authors incorporate fun facts, specific information, and thoroughly researched statistical data into each entry.

From the inception of the Penn Relays in 1895 to the Eagles' Nick Foles's record-tying performance in 2013, this book covers it all. Relive the evening in late October of 2008 when the Phillies captured their second World Series title or Allen Iverson's 55-point showing against the Hornets in the first game of the 2003 playoffs. The authors take you through the greatest moments in Philadelphia-sports history, as well as the moments when the pain of being a sports fan is in full force in the City of Brotherly Love. It's all here, in This Day in Philadelphia Sports.
