Athletics in The Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame

See: Members of the Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame

The Athletics have made no public recognition of Philadelphia Athletics players at the Overstock.com Coliseum. From 1978 to 2003 (except 1983), however, the Philadelphia Phillies inducted one former Athletic (and one former Phillie) each year into the Philadelphia Baseball Wall of Fame at the then-existing Veterans Stadium. In March 2004, after Veterans Stadium was replaced by the new Citizens Bank Park, the Athletics' plaques were relocated to the Philadelphia Athletics Historical Society in Hatboro, Pennsylvania, and a single plaque listing all of the A's inductees was attached to a statue of Connie Mack that is located across the street from Citizens Bank Park.

Famous quotes containing the words fame, wall, philadelphia and/or baseball:

    ...I, his wife, rested and was warmed in the sunlight of his loyal love, and glorious fame, and now, even though his beautiful life has gone out, it is as when some far off planet disappears from the heavens, the light of his great fame still falls upon and warms me.
    Julia Dent Grant (1825–1902)

    Me in my vow’d
    Picture the sacred wall declares t’have hung
    My dank and dropping weeds
    To the stern God of Sea.
    Horace [Quintus Horatius Flaccus] (65–8)

    I’d like to see Paris before I die. Philadelphia will do.
    Mae West, U.S. screenwriter, W.C. Fields, and Edward Cline. Cuthbert Twillie (W.C. Fields)

    Baseball is the religion that worships the obvious and gives thanks that things are exactly as they seem. Instead of celebrating mysteries, baseball rejoices in the absence of mysteries and trusts that, if we watch what is laid before our eyes, down to the last detail, we will cultivate the gift of seeing things as they really are.
    Thomas Boswell, U.S. sports journalist. “The Church of Baseball,” Baseball: An Illustrated History, ed. Geoffrey C. Ward, Knopf (1994)
