The Phillies were experiencing what was the longest championship drought in professional baseball history at the start of the 1980s, 97 years since the team was founded and 70 years since the inception of the World Series. The Phillies registered five winning seasons in the last 5 years of the 1970s, but a playoff victory had proven elusive despite winning the NL East Division in three of them. The team had never won one in their history, with World Series defeats in 1915 and 1950. 1980 finally brought them some success, when MVP Mike Schmidt would lead the team to a 4-2 World Series victory over the Royals. Eventually, the Phillies would win five Division titles in a row between 2007 and 2011, and claimed their second World Series title in 2008.
