The 1993 Phillies had more winning games than all but two Phillies teams in the club's 111-year history, and highly talented and entertaining top-ranking players like Lenny Dykstra, John Kruk, Darren Daulton, Curt Schilling, and Mitch Williams. The Phillies enjoyed sweet victories over their toughest competitors, the St. Louis Cardinals, the Montreal Expos, and the Atlanta Braves.

A follow-up to The New Phillies Encyclopedia, which Allen Lewis of the Baseball Hall of Fame called "the finest and most complete book about any team in sports," Phillies '93 covers the spectacular plays, outstanding performances, and thrilling victories of the 1993 Phillies season.

Author Rich Westcott, a veteran sports writer, traces the evolution of one of the most colorful teams in Phillies history, from the off-season roster decisions, through spring training, the ups and downs of the championship season, and culminating in an in-depth look at what happened on and off the field during the National League Championship Series and World Series.
