Regular season

  • Harry Kalas was hired by the Phillies in 1971 to succeed Bill Campbell, and was the master of ceremonies at the 1971 opening of Veterans Stadium.
  • June 25, 1971: Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Willie Stargell hit the longest home run in Veterans Stadium history off of pitcher Jim Bunning in a 14-4 Pirates win over the Phillies.[4] The spot where the ball landed was marked with a yellow star with a black "S" inside a white circle until Stargell's 2001 death, when the white circle was painted black.[5] The star remained until the stadium's 2004 demolition.
