I am attaching “On July 11 in Philadelphia Baseball History” because it is five pages long. I wrote about following categories: On This Day, Transactions, Birthdays, Major League and Phillies Debuts, and Last Games. If there was time in this past Sunday’s chat, I would have talked about Phillies’ and Athletics’ All-Star moments on July 11 since the All-Star game was on July 13.
