It has become a tradition for the Phillies to induct at least one player every season onto their Wall of Fame. The tradition started back in 1978 with Robin Roberts and has continued every season up until now. It is a way to honor some of the Phillies All-Time Greats. With their name going up on the wall either in the 200 level at Veteran’s Stadium or now in the Left Field Plaza at Citizen’s Bank Park.

We already saw two names, former owner Ruly Carpenter, and former GM John Quinn, go up onto the wall this season. But there is one more name waiting to go up on the wall this season. Tonight, Scott Rolen is being inducted into the Phillies Wall of Fame. He will join 46 other Phillies legends who have already been inducted.

Whether or not Rolen belongs up there is a matter of some debate among fans. Not because people don’t think he is good enough. He is undoubtedly one of the best 3rd basemen in Phillies history, with only Mike Schmidt and Dick Allen ahead of him. But fans still feel some type of way about Rolen forcing his way out of Philly, to land in St Louis. A place he dubbed “baseball heaven.” And even 20 years later, many fans still have not forgiven the recently inducted Hall of Famer.

Regardless of what some fans think, or want, he is going up on that wall. But who is he joining up on that wall?

Here are the names already up on the wall:

  • 1978: Robin Roberts

    Robin Roberts was the first name to go up onto the Wall of Fame. He was inducted in 1978 at Veteran’s Stadium. He pitched 14 seasons with the Phillies, racking up 234 wins, with a 3.46 ERA. Robin Roberts was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1976.

  • 1979: Richie Asburn

    A  two-time batting title winner, 6-time All-Star, and Hall of Fame Center Fielder, Richie Ashburn was the second name to go up on the wall for the Phillies. He only hit 29 HRs in his career, but he did pretty much everything else at an elite level. In 12 seasons with the Phillies, he hit .311, with a .394 on-base percentage. And of course, once he hung up his bat, he was equally great as a color commentator next to Harry Kalas, with the pair making one of the best broadcast booths in Baseball history.

  • 1980: Chuck Klein

    Chuck Klein had 3 separate stints with the Phillies. From 1928 to 1933. Then he returned in 1936 through 1939. He spent half a season with the Pirates but then returned again until 1944 when he retired. Klein hit 243 Hrs with the Phillies while batting .326. Most of his power came in the first stint early in his career. He was the 3rd Phillies player to make it onto the wall, going up in the 1980 season.

  • 1981: Grover Cleveland Alexander

    Definitely one of the oldest players on the Phillies Wall of Fame. His career with the Phillies started in 1911 and ran until 1917. He also spent time with the Cubs and Cardinals and finished his career with one more season in Philly. He won the Pitcher Triple Crown 3 times with the Phillies, leading the league in ERA, Strikeouts, and Wins. his ERa in 8 seasons with the Phillies was 2.18, to go with 190 wins and 1,409 strikeouts.

  • 1982- Del Ennis

    The first guy to make the Phillies Wall of Fame, but not the Baseball Hall of Fame. Del Ennis hit 259 Hrs for the Phillies, which was a team record until Mike Schmidt broke it. He is still 3rd in Phillies history, with Ryan Howard being the other guy to pass him.

  • 1984- Jim Bunning

    Only two Phillies have thrown a perfect game. Obviously Roy Halladay, but also Jim Bunning. On Father’s Day in 1964, he blanked the Mets. In 6 seasons with the Phillies, he had a 2.93 ERA. Over his full career, he made 9 All-Star teams and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1996.

  • 1984- Ed Delahanty

    In 1984, the Phillies went back to the 1800’s for the newest edition to the Wall of Fame. Ed Delahanty played for the Phillies from 1888 until 1901. He hit .348 with 87 home runs, won two batting titles, and went into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1945. for a long time, he held the honor as the only player to ever lead both the AL and NL in a single season, until DJ LaMahieu also accomplished the feat.

  • 1986- Cy Williams

    Williams’ career started with the Cubs in 1912, and he joined the Phillies in 1918. He played the rest of his career here, 13 seasons, hitting 217 HRs with a .306 batting average.

  • 1987- Granny Hammer

    Granny Hammer played mostly SS, and some 2nd Base, for the Phillies over 16 seasons. In that time he hit 103 HRs, and hit .263. He was part of the Phillies team that lost to the Yankees in the 1950 World Series.

  • 1988- Paul Owens

    The first nonplayer to make it onto the Phillies Wall of Fame. “Pope” Paul Owens is credited as the architect of the 1980 Phillies team that finally got the city a World Series. He served as the Phillies GM from 1972 until 1984 and had a few brief stints as the Phillies Manager when he was not pleased with the performances of his Managers and decided to take over. The Phillies created the Paul Owens Awrd, which goes to the best player in their Minor Leagues System every year.

  • 1989- Steve Carlton

    I dont need to explain to anyone who Steve Carlton is. He is the best pitcher in Phillies history and one of the best lefties period. He made 10 All-Star teams, won the Cy Young award 4 times, won the Triple Crown in 1972, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1994.

  • 1990- Mike Schmidt

    Likewise, Mike Schmidt needs no explanation. The best hitter, and arguably the best Phillies player ever. It is either him or Steve Carlton. He still leads the Phillies on the All-Time HR list with 548. He also won 10 Gold Gloves, won MVP 3 times, made 12 All-Star Teams, and went into the Hall of Fame in 1995.

  • 1991- Larry Bowa

    Another member of that 1980 team, more than anyone, Larry Bowa has kept strong ties to the Phillies. His actual career may not be as prolific as Schmidt or Carlton, but he is just as beloved, if not more so, because of how involved he has been with the team and city since. As a player, he won two gold gloves at SS and made 5 All-Star teams. He went on the manage the team for 4 years in the early 2000s and even won Manager of the Year once.

  • 1992- Chris Short

    Chris Short was mostly a starter, and sometimes a reliever, over 14 seasons from 1959 to 1971 with the Phillies. In those 14 seasons, his ERA was 3.48, won 132 games, and struck out 1,585 batters.

  • 1993- Curt Simmons

    Curt Simmons pitched for the Phillies from 1947 until 1960. In that time he had a 3.66 ERA, with 115 wins, and 1,052 strikeouts. Simmons also made 3 All-Star Games with the Phillies.

  • 1994- Dick Allen

    One of the most underappreciated players in Phillies history. He won Rookie of the Year with them in 1964, and over 9 seasons with the Phillies, he hit 204 HRs, made 3 All-Star Games, and went on to win MVP and make 4 more All-Star games after he left the Phillies. He should probably be in the Hall Of Fame, but he is one of the 9 players whose number the Phillies retired.

  • 1995- Willie Jones

    Jones manned the hot corner for the Phillies from 1947 till 1959. In those 13 seasons, he hit 180 home runs and batted .258. He also made two All-Star Games.

  • 1996- Sam Thompson

    Sam Thompson was a Phillies Right Fielder from 1889 until 1898. With the Phillies, he hit .334 with 107 HRs. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1974.

  • 1997- Johnny Callison

    Callison played 10 seasons with the Phillies between 1960 and 1969. He made 3 All-Star games with them and went down in Baseball History as one of only 3 players who hit a walk-off HR in an All-Star Game.

  • 1998- Greg Luzinski

    “The Bull” roamed Left Field for the Phillies for 11 years from 1970 until 1980. In that time, he made 4 All-Star teams and hit 223 HRs. He is also a regular part of Citizens Bank Park, having opened “Bull’s Barbeque inside Citizens Bank Park.

  • 1999- Tug McGraw

    Tug McGraw was a Phillies reliever from 1975 until 1984, and the closer in the World Series season. It was Tug who got the final out in that World Series. But what really made him a Philly Icon is his speech at the World Serie parade

    “All through baseball history, Philadelphia has had to take a back seat to New York City. Well, New York City can take this world championship and stick it! ‘CAUSE WE’RE NUMBER ONE!”

  • 2000- Gavvy Cravath

    From 1912 til 1920 with the Phillies, Cravath led the League in HRS 6 times, piling up 117 total with the team. He also had 80 steals to go with all of that power.

  • 2001- Garry Maddox

    Known as the “Secretary of Defense”, Maddox won 7 straight Gold Gloves in Center Field for the Phillies from 1976 to 1982. He also hit .284 and stole 189 bases, and it was his RBI Double that counts as the winning run in game 5 of the 1980 NLCS.

  • 2002- Tony Taylor

    Before Chase Utley came around, it was Tony Taylor who led the Phillies in games played at 2B. He also played some 3rd Base, and a little SS in his 15 seasons with the Phillies. He is in the top 10 of a lot of stats, including at-bats and singles, with the Phillies just because of his longevity.

  • 2003- Sherry Magee

    Magee played for the Phillies from 1904 to 1914. In those 11 seasons, he hit .299, with an OPS of .818. In 1910, he led the league in every component of a slash line, Avg, OBP, SLG, and OPS. He also led the league in hits with the Phillies in 1914.

  • 2004- Billy Hamilton

    No relation to the modern-day Billy Hamilton, but just as dangerous on the bases. Hamilton, despite playing in the 1800s, and only spending 6 seasons on the team, still leads the Phillies in steals with 510 and had 4 separate seasons with more than 100 stolen bases.

  • 2005-Bob Boone

    The defensive-minded backstop won 7 gold Gloves in his career, including 2 with the Phillies. If it wasn’t for Johnny Bench, he would likely have far more. He caught games with the Phillies from 1972 until 1981, catching the final strike of the 1980 World Series.

  • 2006- Dallas Green

    Green pitched for 6 seasons with the Phillies in the ’60s but may be better known as the Manager who led the Phillies to their first-ever World Series. He only managed the team from 1979 to 1981. But he didn’t need much time to make his mark on Phillies history.

  • 2007- John Vukovich

    A baseball lifer, Vukovich spent 41 seasons in the MLB as either a player or a manager. 30 of those were with the Phillies, with 7 as a player. He did not necessarily shine as a player but was on the Phillies Coaching staff for longer than anyone else in Phillies history. After he passed away in 2007, the Phillies honored him with a “Vuk” patch on their jerseys, and then they inducted him into the Wall of Fame in August.

  • 2008- Juan Samuel

    249 steals, 921 hits, 100 HRs, and 71 triples across 7 seasons in a Phillies Jersey. Then he returned as a 3rd Base Coach and later a First Base Coach for the Phillies.

  • 2009- Harry Kalas

    The Best Play-by-play guy in baseball history, period. Phillies fans of all ages grew up with him as the voice of the Phillies. He was there when the team won its first Ring in 1980. He was there when they came just short in 1993. And he was there when they got the second Ring in 2008. Almost every good thing in Phillies history was voiced by Harry Kalas. It is just a shame this induction had to be done after Harry passed away because few people deserve to be celebrated more than him.

     

  • 2010- Darren Daulton

    A leader of that 1993 Phillies team, Darren “Dutch” Daulton was beloved in Philadelphia. The case for the best catcher in Phillies history is between him and Carlos Ruiz. He caught for the Phillies across 14 seasons, winning 1 Silver Slugger award, and making the All-Star game 3 times. In those 13 seasons, he racked up 134 Hrs. And in 1992 he led the NL in RBIs with 109.

  • 2011- John Kruk

    Whether you knew him as a player in the 90s or now as a broadcaster, there are very few people who don’t love John Kruk. He had a .309 Batting average for the Phillies across  6 seasons. He also made 3 All-Star teams and was a vital part of that 1993 team that almost went all the way. I think we can forgive him for wiggling out of an obligation to visit the St. Louis Arch.

  • 2012- Mike Lieberthal

    It may be because his time with the Phillies was a dark age, with very little winning going on, but Lieberthal is one of the most underappreciated Phillies, maybe ever. It could also be because he was stuck between the two most beloved catches in franchise history Darren Daulton and Carlos Ruiz. But Lieberthal played 13 seasons with the Phillies, racking up 1,155 hits, 150 HRs, and 610 RBIs. He also made two All-Star teams and won a Gold Glove.

  • 2013- Curt Schilling

    Schilling spent 9 of his 20 seasons in the MLB with the Phillies. And while his actions off the field, there 8is a town in Rhode Island very unhappy with him,  have left him a bit of a pariah, his play on it was never in doubt.  a 3.35 ERA, 101 wins, and 1,554 strikeouts.

  • 2014- Charlie Manuel

    The Phillies would never have one a 2nd World Series if it was not for the Skipper. Charlie Manuel is the best manager in Phillies history. His 780 wins are the most by any Manager in Phillies history. They won the NL East 5 straight times under his leadership, making 2 World Series and winning 1. Side note, it is great to hear Charlie Manuel is recovering after recently suffering a stroke. Baseball is at its best when Charlie Manuel is around the game. He was suitably the first member of the 2008 team to go onto the Wall.

    Charlie Manuel on Twitter: "I want to thank all the people who are pulling for me. I am touched that you are showing me love. And I want to thank @LKLDRegional Critical Care team for hustling and being on time. You have kept me in the game. Charlie Manuel 🧠❤️ / Twitter"

    I want to thank all the people who are pulling for me. I am touched that you are showing me love. And I want to thank @LKLDRegional Critical Care team for hustling and being on time. You have kept me in the game. Charlie Manuel 🧠❤️

  • 2015- Pat Burrell

    Pat “The Bat” Burrell became the first player of that 2008 team to make it onto the Wall of Fame. As of now, it is just him and Charlie Manuel, but if the amount of 1980 Phillies who are on the wall is any indication, there could be as many as 24 teammates joining him at some point. Perhaps underappreciated because of just how good his teammates were, Pat was a force with the Phillies. He had 4 30 HR seasons, and 253 total HRs in his time with the Phillies, more than both Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins.

  • 2016- Jim Thome

    The only Phillies player to join the 600-HR club, even if most of it was done elsewhere. Thome spent part of his illustrious career in Philadelphia, playing first base in 2003 and 2004 and part of 2005, then returning as a pinch hitter in 2012 for a bit. He hit 101 HRs across 391 games. His time here was short because Ryan Howard was behind him waiting for first base to open up. But the short time here was certainly special and included him hitting his 400th HR.

  • 2018- Pat Gillick

    Gillick was the 4th GM to make it into the MLB Hall of Fame, and the 2nd to go onto the Phillies Wall of Fame. While it is true most of the Phillies core was in place already when he took over for Ed Wade, it was Gillick who traded for Jamie Moyer, Brad Lidge, and Joe Blanton, and it was Gillick who found Jayson Werth and Matt Stairs. All key figures of that World Series team. He never made that big splashy move many fans wanted, but his subtle moves rounded out the roster.

  • 2018- Roy Halladay

    Roy Halladay’s inclusion on this list is sad. Not because he doesn’t deserve it, he certainly does. He threw a perfect game, a playoff no-hitter, and won Cy Young, all in his first season with the Phillies. His time here was short but he made a huge impact. The sad part is the reason he went onto the Wall of Fame so early. Usually, players have to wait. Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, and Jimmy Rollins are still waiting. The reason Halladay went up was that he sadly passed away. The Phillies also retired his number.

  • 2019- Bobby Abreu

    We probably don’t appreciate just how good Bobby Abreu was with the Phillies. The Phillies did not win much during his time here, but not sue to lack of production from him. He hit .304, with 195 HRs, and 254 steals in 9 years with the Phillies.

  • 2021- Manny Trillo

    Manny Trillo is a big part of the reason the Phillies won the 1980 World Series. It was his 9th-inning infield single that drove in the game-winning run in game 5. He also famously drove in 2 runs in game 5 of the 1980 NLCS with a triple, capping off the Phillies’ rally to go ahead 7-5. The Phillies would blow that game, but still won in extra innings.

  • 2022- Bake McBride

    “Shake n Bake” quickly became a fan favorite after joining the Phillies in 1977, hitting .339 that first season. Injuries slowed him down a bit in his later seasons with the Phillies. But he was still a big part of the 1980 World Series team.

  • 2022- Ron Reed

    Ron Reed spent the first half of his career starting games for the Braves. But when he came to the Phillies in 1976, they moved him to the Bullpen, where he played some of the best Baseball of his career. In 8 seasons here, his ERA was 3.06, with 90 saves. He was a big part of the bullpen in the 1980 World Series Season.

  • 2023- Ruly Carpenter

    Ruly Carpenter is one of the most successful Owners in Phillies history. His family actually owned the Phillies starting in 1943 when his grandfather bought the team. But it was not until 1972 that Ruly took over as team President. He was instrumental in hiring Paul Owens, and oversaw the first World Series in team history. He sold the team just one year after that World Series though.

  • 2023- John Quinn

    John Quinn was the Phillies GM from 1959 to 1972. He took a cellar-dwelling team, and turned them into contenders, bringing in names we have already seen on this list like Jim Bunning, Dick Allen, and Steve Carlton. They never actually won anything in his tenure, but he got the Phillies on the right track and brought in the best pitcher in Phillies history.

  • 2023- Scott Rolen

    And of course, the latest guy to go onto the wall is Scott Rolen. Not necessarily a fan favorite, he forced his way out after years of bad baseball by the Phillies. Then he went on to have a Hall of Fame Career. But regardless of how you feel about that, you can’t deny his greatness in a Phillies Uniform. 150 Hrs in 7 seasons here 316 total. Over 2000 hits. And he finished his career with 7 Gold Gloves, including 4 in a Phillies jersey.
