World Champions = National Coverage

Monday, November 10, 2008 ·

The Phillies will begin their title defense in front of not only sold out Citizen's Bank Park, but also in front of a national audience. That's right, the Phillies season opener will be broadcasted Sunday night on ESPN2. The April 5th night will likely be as cold as the glorious October nights we just finished.

The team is scheduled to host the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park on April 5 at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2's Sunday Night Baseball, a distinction usually reserved for the team that takes the title the previous season.

The Phillies had originally been scheduled to begin the 2009 season on April 6 at 1:05 p.m [].
Cole Hamels will likely start the first game of 2009 after he started the final game of the 2008 season.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
