Today in Phillies History for March 25th

It happened on this day in:

1919: The Phillies open their spring training camp in Charlotte, NC, the only year they train in that city. The site was chosen in part due to travel restrictions at the end of World War I.
1977: Mike Schmidt was late to the day's spring workout in Clearwater. When he heard that stretching drills had begun, he rushed to the field without fastening his pants. When he took his place and began the neck stretches, his pants dropped to his knees.
2015: An episode of the ABC sit-com "The Goldbergs" set in the 1980's-era Veterans Stadium first airs. In the show, a young Adam Goldberg gets lost at the Vet during a Phillies game and encounters the Phanatic.
