- Your daily dose of Phillies history

Today in Phillies History for October 31st

It Happened Today in:

1964: Shortstop Reuben Amaro and pitcher Bobby Shantz win gold gloves. Johnny Callison was runner up behind outfielders Willie Mays, Curt Flood, and Roberto Clemente
2008: An estimated 2 million fans attend the parade celebrating the Phillies 2008 World Series victory. The procession was led by Pat Burrell and his dog, Elvis.
2009: Jayson Werth goes deep twice, but it's not enough to make up for Cole Hamels allowing 5 runs in less then 5 innings as the Phillies drop Game 3 of the World Series to New York by an 8-5 score. Two of New York's runs scored on a ball Alex Rodriguez hit off an outfield camera -- the first home run reviewed by instant replay in World Series history. Chase Utley failed to reach base, snapping his record of 27 straight post-season games.

Phillies Transactions on This Day:

1972: Traded Don Money, John Vukovich and Bill Champion to Milwaukee for Jim Lonborg, Ken Sanders, Ken Brett and Earl Stephenson
