Jim Bunning Perfect Game Autographed 16x20 Framed PhotoFather’s Day is June 16th and let’s face it, you probably haven’t gotten dear old dad anything yet. If you’re a Phillies fan, there’s a good chance you can thank your dad for that. That’s why we’re making it easy for you to get him a quality present and get 20% off your order. And you know he’ll appreciate that deal!

We’ve totally revamped the Phillies Nation store to make your shopping experience smoother. We’ve also partnered with the guys at Dynasty Sports to sell officially licensed Phillies autographs, novelties and memorabilia from their shops in the King of Prussia, Willow Grove and Oxford Valley malls. We now have stuff like an autographed Jim Bunning Perfect Game Framed Photo, a Phillies beer mug, an autographed Pete Rose/Bob Boone Framed Photo, even a Phillies Steering Wheel Cover. We also put together an entire Father’s Day category with gifts specifically for dad.

We still have great items like Dan Duffy’s Lionword prints (which now have framed and canvas wrapped options) and our classic PHILS stickers.

To redeem the 20% off offer, visit the Phillies Nation store using this link or use the promo code “dad” at checkout.

Wiffadelphia a huge success

Posted by Brian Michael, Mon, March 11, 2013 10:35 AM Comments: 10

2013 Wiffadelphia ChampionsMore than 150 people descended upon Big League Dreams in Medford, NJ on Saturday for the first annual Wiffadelphia charity wiffleball tournament. Through their generosity, the Phillies Nation Foundation was able to raise over $2,000 and collect 400 lbs. of food for Philabundance and its mission to drive hunger from our communities.

Congratulations to the winning team Buzz’s Girlfriend…Wiff who beat Jawn Stars 10-0 in the final that started just after the witching hour. And a hat tip to Jordan from Swamp Ducks who won the speed pitch contest with a big league toss of 82 mph.

A huge thanks goes out to the Phillies Nation team, our sponsors and the staff of Big League Dreams for making this event a reality.

We have a bunch of photos below for your viewing pleasure, but they don’t quite capture the budding rivalry brewing between Team Pat Gallen and Team Corey Seidman. We’ll also be airing some video from the tournament during the premiere of Phillies Nation TV, this Tuesday at 6:30 pm on The Comcast Network. Come watch it with us at our premiere party.

You draft a team for one night and get paid out as soon as the games end that night.  DraftStreet.com is at the forefront of this new trend in the fantasy world and is giving us a great promotion: a FREE one-day fantasy league with $200 in prizes exclusively for Phillies Nation fans.

This free contest will be salary-cap style drafting where everyone tries to assemble the best team out of the available players.You will have a $100,000 budget to build a team of 2 LW’s, 2 RW’s, 2 Center’s, 2 Defensive players, 1 Goalie, and a FLEX. Each NHL player has been allocated a price based on their expected fantasy performance.

You can adjust your roster up until the contest starts on Saturday, February 23rd at 7pm, at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.
