Once again in 2013, fans will have a voice in which former player, coach or manager is selected to the Phillies Wall of Fame this year. Voting is underway and ends at 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Last year's honoree, Mike Lieberthal, became the 34th inductee into the Wall of Fame.
Fans can select their top three choices from a 12-man ballot of Phillies alumni. A first place vote is worth five points, second place three points and third place one point. The top five fan consensus choices as determined by total points will serve as the official ballot for a special Wall of Fame Selection Committee that will choose this year's inductee.
Induction ceremonies at Citizens Bank Park are set for August 2, prior to the 7:05 p.m. game against the Braves. A 14"x20" cast bronze plaque will be added to the Toyota Wall of Fame display located in the Memory Lane section of Ashburn Alley. The following day, August 3, is Phillies Alumni Night in which former players living in the tri-state area will be introduced pre-game.
Players with five or more years of service are eligible. Managers and coaches need four or more years of service. All candidates must be retired for three years before they can be eligible for the 12-man ballot. In addition to a player's statistical record, consideration is given to longevity, ability, contributions to the Phillies and baseball, character, plus special achievements.
