10 – Del Ennis (1946 – 1956)

Ennis, a key member of the 1950 “Whiz Kids”, is third on the franchise home run list with 259. He eclipsed the 20 home run plateau eight times and twice hit 30 or more, belting a career-high 31 in 1950. Ennis finished among the top ten home run hitters in the National League eight times, including four straight seasons from 1952 to 1955.

9 – Chase Utley (2003 – 2015)

The best second baseman in franchise history, Utley was the best hitting second baseman from 2005 through 2009. He reached 30 or more home runs three times with a career-high 33 for the 2008 World Series champions. Utley opened the World Series that year with a bang, hitting a two-run home run in the first inning Game One of the series. In addition, he tied Reggie Jackson’s Major League record for most home runs in a World Series with five in 2009. Utley is sixth in franchise history with 233 home runs.

8 – Cy Williams (1918 – 1930)

Williams led the league in home runs four times, all in a Phillies’ uniform. He belted a career-best 41 in 1923.  Eighth on the Phillies all-time home run list, Williams hit 217 long balls with a .306 batting average in 1463 games with the franchise.

7 – Greg Luzinski (1970 – 1980)

Known simply as “The Bull”, Luzinski hit some of the longest balls in the history of old Veteran’s Stadium. Not just a power threat, Luzinski hit over .300 three times and had a career .281 average with the Phillies. He hit 30 or more home runs three times with a career-best 39 in 1977.
