[Unfamiliar with 'Clip Reel?' You can click here for more information.]

With a win tonight behind ace Cole Hamels, the Philadelphia Phillies can reach their first World Series since 1993. We decided to turn 'Clip Reel' to a brief look at their history and accomplishments, mostly since their lone championship in 1980. We did manage to sneak Mike Schmidt singing circa 1976 in there, though.
