The title of this new book about the Phillies is compelling. “162-0: Imagine A Phillies Perfect Season” is the new Phillies book written by Paul Kurtz.
Every time I tell someone about the new book that I am reading and reviewing here at FightinPhillies.com, their eyes become wide open and they really get excited just at the title.

The book is a time capsule of Phillies wins throughout the baseball season. It’s a season that the Phillies never lose. Isn’t that what most Phillies fans think is supposed to happen?
Paul Kurtz, who if the name sounds familiar is because he has worked for KYW 1060 news radio for over 32 years, has chronicled the most memorable victories for everyday on the baseball calendar.
In the book, you will read a lot about things that you may have forgotten about as you have watched Phillies baseball over the years. You’ll also read some things that have happened over the course of Phillies history that you are reading and learning about for the first time.
