No. 2: Shane Victorino (2005-2012)

No one will forget Victorino’s contributions to the 2008 World Series championship team.  His grand slam off CC Sabathia in Game 2 of the NLDS will be embedded in the minds of Phillies’ fans forever.

More from Phillies All-Time Lists

Victorino was stellar in the field, receiving Gold Glove Awards from 2008-2010. He was also a two-time All-Star in 2009 and 2011, leading the league in triples both seasons.

Listed on the official Phillies website as a center fielder for all-time leaders in franchise history, Victorino ranks first in that group in home runs, second in triples, third in runs scored and fourth in doubles, stolen bases and RBI.

One of the most exciting and memorable Phillies in recent memory is also one of the best ever to have worn number 8.
