Winning a World Series title. To be the best in the world at what you do. Ask any athlete about their ultimate goal and they all say the same thing: to win a championship.
For professional baseball players no matter how many individual achievements they may have earned from Cy Young Awards to MVPs, they all want to be forever known as World Champions and have the ring to prove it.
But only one team can win it all each year which leaves many superstar athletes without that crowning achievement. In the case of the Philadelphia Phillies, the championships have been few and far between.
Although they are the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of American pro sports dating all the way back to 1883, they have only won two (count 'em TWO) World Series titles, one in 1980 and the other, in 2008.
That leaves lots of choices for this top ten list. And this is one list these Phillies would rather not be on: The 10 Greatest Phillies Players to Never Win a Title.
