Catcher- Bob Boone (1981)

Boone was a big part of the Phillies run in the late 1970’s and World Series championship team in 1980.  While he was very solid behind the plate defensively, Boone was generally mediocre at the plate. A career .254 hitter with a .661 OPS, Boone has one of his worst seasons with the bat in 1981. In 76 starts during the strike-shortened season, Boone hit .211 with a poor .279 on-base percentage and anemic .295 slugging percentage. He had only 11 extra base hits in 227 at-bats.

First base – Pete Rose (1983)

The MLB all-time hits leader was a key component in getting Philadelphia over the top for the first World Series championship in franchise history. However, as a member of the 1983 NL Championship team, Rose struggled at the plate. Clearly near the end of a great career, Rose hit just .245 with a .286 slugging percentage and .602 OPS. In 493 at-bats, Rose had only 17 extra-base hits.
