I would assume so, though one would also assume that a team about to set a milestone for losses didn't spend too much time in various post-seasons...

That is a LOT of losses, especially considering they played what? 150 games or so, for most of the last century?


Sure does seem like a lot. Here's a link to their history - I'm sure not going to add up all the losses, but someone else can! :-B

According to the link above, the Phillies' first 162-game season was 1962. But I know the Yankees played 162 in 1961 - that's why there was the "asterisk" beside Maris' record. Did the NL go to 162 later? Can't imagine that - I'm confused! :*)

The Phillies were founded back in the 1800s, so the have had like a 130 years to accomulate all those loses.


not just 10,000 losses, but the only team in professional sports with 10,000 losses. Not even the Blackhawks!



There will be celebrating in the streets of Chicago when Bill Wirtz finally kicks the bucket. :-t

Yep, did the math, 9971 losses, playoffs not included. You can look it up.

By the way, it's just normal that this milestone should first be reached by a baseball team, since they play 2 times more games than basketball and hockey and 10 times more than football...

And yes, the AL went to 162 games in 1961, the NL a year later. The extended schedule coincided with expansion in both leagues, getting each from 8 to 10 teams (AL 1961: LA Angels and Washington Senators, NL 1962: NY Mets and Houston Colt .45s).
