Inspired by someone who sent a similar request to 92 soccer teams, a fan from Croatia wrote every MLB team asking why he should be their lifelong fan. Seven teams responded, and the Phillies gave the most unique response.
While we appreciate the support of all of our fans, the reason for choosing one team versus another is a strictly personal reason. We do not try to ‘sell’ fans, rather we allow them the opportunity to choose to follow the Phillies for their own myriad of reasons.
Good luck with your choice.
Some teams tried to give historic reasons, some pointed to players the team currently has, but the Phillies went a completely different route.

They're only slightly better than the Phillies on the diamond but they're way more fun to poke fun at off of it.
When Mr. Met isn't acting like a [eggplant emoji] to fans at CitiField, the team is busy producing bobbleheads that look like [eggplant emoji] to actually hand to fans. The first 15,000 fans at this Saturday's game with the Oakland Athletics will get a special treat.
As Deadspin points out, the Mets will giveaway this lovely Noah Syndergaard bobblehead that contains a hammer of strange design.
Nike kicks off an 8-year exclusive partnership with the NBA and will be the official provider of all jerseys, shorts, and basically the classic parts of the basketball uniform.
A number of team's have already released what their new jerseys with a Nike swoosh will look like. The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings have shared images of their new jerseys.
Notice the swoosh on one side with the sponsorship logo on the other. The Sixers will have StubHub on their new Nike jerseys.
Chris Heck, the Sixers' Chief Sales and Marketing Officer best known for tweeting images with only a #OnBrand hashtag, shared what appears to be the first look at the new Sixers' gear with a Nike logo.
As you may or may not be aware, Nike is doing away with a traditional "home" and "away" uniform, instead producing four different uniforms for each team that they can choose from. Here's how NBA.com describes it:
Another significant change coming this fall involves adjusting the nomenclature of what were formerly known as “home” and “away” uniforms. Beginning with the 2017-18 season, home teams are not automatically assigned to wear white uniforms, and instead will be allowed to choose which uniform they want to wear for each home game. Visiting teams will then choose a contrasting uniform from their available options.
