The Philadelphia Phillies took home the world championship trophy tonight winning its first championship since 1980. Twenty-five years to be exact. It was a wacky series that resumed tonight after a rain delay on Monday. The Phillies took home the championship for a city starved from championship glory.
For the first time, the championship came before a national television audience before 11 PM. Which meant that the series had someone of a prime time audience. So the city of Philadelphia can be proud of a winner and with it full slates of sports teams, the Eagles, Flyers, Sixers and Phillies, the city where Philly steaks are king, can be proud that they now have a winner.
Charlie Manual guided the Phillies to its second World Series title.
