Philadelphia Phil and Phyllis

From BR Bullpen


Philadelphia Phil and Phillis were short lived mascots of the Philadelphia Phillies who made their debut in 1971, the same year the Phillies opened Veterans Stadium. Phil and his counterpart Phyllis were children dressed in colonial garb. They are instantly noticeable because of their humongous heads. Phil and Phyllis were used heavily in promotions for the bicentennial in 1976. Their popularity was brief and they were replaced by the Phillie Phanatic in 1978. In 2003, they were brought back for the final weekend of Veterans Stadium and performed with the Phanatic.
