Phillies Alumni weekend is upon us. If you're a Phils fan and you can make it, I recommend the outing. The organization does a good job bringing back former players and holding events.
This year the Phillies Wall of Fame inductee is Mike Lieberthal. I haven't seen who will be introducing him, but a number of Phils luminaries are expected to be on hand for the occasion including Steve Carlton and Mike Schmidt.
Mike Lieberthal is the one guy that most connects all the non-playoff years between 1994 and 2006. Did a little research and found out he does not have the most games played as a Phil without repping them in the playoffs. That dubious distinction belongs to Tony Taylor.
Despite his long tenure as a Phillies player I have only featured one Lieberthal card here previously, but I did put him on my Phillies all oughts team. Which I may rethink with Carlos Ruiz having a very successful post-oughts career.
Lieberthal did make the all-star team twice (1999, 2000) and hit 150 Home Runs during his Phillies career which I suppose is Wall of Fame worthy - but I got him as one of their weaker candidates.
