With Shane Victorino’s retirement ceremony happening Friday night, let’s look back at the best moments of his Phillies career.

After a 12-year career, Shane Victorino will retire with the Phillies Friday night in a pregame ceremony. He hasn’t played in the majors since 2015 with the Angels, but Victorino has not officially called it quits until now. His retirement ceremony will be one of several events celebrating the 2008 World Series champions and other teams of the era.

Over eight years with the Phillies, Victorino hit .279 with a .784 OPS, hitting 88 home runs, driving in 390 runs, and stealing 179 bases. He was worth 24 wins above replacement in this span. Victorino’s defensive prowess in center field earned him three straight Gold Gloves from 2008 to 2010.

Victorino became a fan favorite thanks to numerous high-energy plays throughout his career. The Flyin’ Hawaiian was never criticized for a lack of hustle, endearing himself to the fan base.

As the team plans to celebrate Victorino Friday night, let’s look back on the best moments of his Phillies career.
