The Philly 40th Anniversary of the 1980 World Championship with special guests Pete Rose, Steve Carlton, Greg Luzinski and Larry Bowa comes to the Bilheimer Capitol Theatre for a special night, which will include classic stories, videos, a Q&A and more, hosted by Chris Wheeler!
Pete Rose, known by his nickname "Charlie Hustle", played baseball from 1983 to 1986 and managed from 1984 to 1989. Rose was a switch hitter and is the all-time MLB leader in hits, games played, at-bats, singles and outs. He won three World Series rings, three batting titles, one MVP Award, two Gold Gloves and the Rookie of the Year Award.
Hall of Famer Steve Carlton was a left-handed pitcher for six different teams from 1965 to 1988, most notably as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies with whom he won four Cy Young Awards as well as the 1980 World Series, becoming the first pitcher to do so. Nicknamed "Lefty", Carlton has the second-most lifetime strikeouts of any left-handed pitcher and the second-most lifetime wins of any left-handed pitcher.
A left fielder, Greg "The Bull" Luzinski spent most of his career with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Roberto Clemente Award, given annually to a Major League Baseball player who demonstrates sportsmanship and community involvement, was presented to Luzinski in 1978. In 1989, Luzinski was inducted into the National Polish-American Sports Hall of Fame.
Larry Bowa played shortstop, as well as being a manager and coach. He played for the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs and New York Mets. Bowa is currently a Senior Advisor to the General Manager of the Phillies. Chris “Wheels” Wheeler is a former announcer and color commentator (1967-2014) for the Philadelphia Phillies.
