4-26-20 In 1983 the Philadelphia Phillies loaded up with ex Cincinnatti Reds and made it to the World Series. The featured Joe Morgan, Pete Rose and Tony Perez to go along with Mike Schmidt. They lacked depth in their pitching staff though and in game 5 of the series they had to start Charles Hudson. They faced a Baltimore Oriole team that lacked a lot of big names. A young Cal Ripken was joined by veterans Eddie Murray and Rick Dempsey. They had a very good pitching staff though and they started Scott McGregor in game 5.
