Why do the Phillies wear Green? Are the Phillies doing the Go Green thing? Is it Irish Cheer? Is it the color of the ghost of the Phillies postseasons. The Irish theory works but !! Was Philly an Irish town with know Irish players?
Phillies spirit I don’t get it. Wait !! We got the Philly Phanatic, who IZ GREEN!!! Huh!!…Citzens Bank has a Green logo and that’s the name of the park, is it that ? Is Philly so cheap it makes a profit off left over St Patricks Day shirts. Yes, People in Philly don’t make money so “tis was all she could afford.” (Phillies fans are so cheap that you can spot a Champion Lenny Dykstra jersey in the crowd sometimes)
Guest site: 7thand Patterson <—asks this same question
Why Green? The Phillies have and ‘authentic’ batting practice Kelly green jersey that they never use.
Is that the reference? Is it St/ Patty’s Day? It surely can’t be a throwback to 1876 and the Philadelphia A’s can it? Was green even invented then? This jersey needs to be left on the shelf. If for some reason ‘by way of a gift’ from you senile grandma this ends up in your possession you have two options. !!Never wear it OR BURN IT !!
PHACTS THE PHILLIES SHARE WITH ST LOUIS CARDINALS ( Team that beat em green with envy in the playoffs)
The Phillies are one of six teams in Major League Baseball that do not display the name of their city, state, or region on their road jerseys. (teams include Los Anageles Angels of Anaheim, Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Rays, and the Florida Marlins. The Phillies are the only team that also diplays the players number on one sleeve. In addition to the usual placement on the back of the jersey.
GREEN IZ THE OPPOSITE OF RED, IMAGINE RED EAGLES
