  • Bill Veeck attempted to purchase the Phillies in late 1943. Veeck’s plan was to sign players from the Negro League to make the Phillies competitive. [1]

Regular season

The Phillies got off to a 12-6 start, and on May 13 were 1.5 games out of first place. However, it was all downhill from there, as they finished with yet another losing season.
