What Others Are Saying
"If you are the type of person who has trouble remembering dates - even,say, your wife's birthday-but you will never forget Jim Bunning's perfect game or the Flyers' win over the Soviets, then this is the book for you. Now you can associate those other events-like your parents' wedding anniversary-with a great moment in Philadelphia sports history, and it will help you remember it. I have only one question: Why didn't someone think of this sooner?"

-- RAY DIDINGER, Philadelphia Hall of Fame sportswriter

"Brian Startare and Kevin Reavy are the consummate Philadelphia sports pros. In this great collection, they share their vast knowledge of the Philadelphia sports we all love with a fresh and fun perspective. I am a big fan! You can bet that there will be a special spot for This Day in Philadelphia Sports on my coffee table."

-- BRIAN PROPP, Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame

"My Philadelphia Athletics are alive and well in these pages. This book is a wonderful way to remember so many teams, players, and moments of this great sports city's past."

-- BOBBY SHANTZ, Philadelphia Athletics, 1952 AL MVP
