Beginning with the year 1900 and going through 2012, Kepner devotes an entire page to each season, giving readers a glimpse at the year's highlights, won-loss record, and interesting anecdotes of the personalities that wore the Phillies uniform. Throughout this massive book, fans will find recollections of past stadiums, spectacular photographs, both black and white and color, and profiles of some of the most prolific players like Pete Alexander, Robin Roberts, Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton. In between each section is a "Record Book" showing the season leaders in several statistical categories, All-Star representatives, award winners, and Kepner's "All Decade Team" for each ten-year block.
Baseball history fans will like The Phillies Experience; Phillies fans will love it. Kepner does a great job of presenting the team's history without sugarcoating it, reporting the good and the bad. Sure, he writes with more enthusiasm about the winning seasons, but refuses to shy away from the negatives that the team has experienced over the years.
