Do NOT change your club name

      Royersford, PA

The Reading Phillies have been called the Reading Phillies since 1967. That is the second longest affiliation of any minor league team and they want to change the name from the name of their affiliate to something else?!? They want to change their name and continue to tear down the tradition of the Double-AA baseball club. They have no good reason to change the name. Please help keep tradition!

The Reading Phillies have been called the Reading Phillies since 1967. Now they want to change their name and continue to tear down the tradition of the Double-AA baseball club. They have no good reason to change the name. Please help keep tradition!

      I go to a half dozen games a year and make sure i go to the morning game every year with my pop since i can remember. I love the Reading PHILLIES because of the branding and the way the railroad ties to Reading. Why would you make the logo what the crazy hot dog vendor rides? That has nothing to do with Reading in the least. I buy something new every time i go at your store...never again. I will not come to another game or buy another product until this crap is changed. Did your marketing department dream what it would look like if the Notre Dame Irishman and a Dr Suess character had a mongoloid kid together?

      How can the most professional minor league team throw out history and tradition to sell ostrich shirts?

      I have been a supporter of the R-Phils for a long time. There is no reason to change the name and the tradition.!!!
