The 1969 Philadelphia Phillies season was a season in American baseball. The team finished fifth in the newly established National League East with a record of 63–99, 37 games behind the division champion New York Mets, who went on to defeat Baltimore, four games to one, in the World Series. It was also the Phillies' penultimate season at Connie Mack Stadium.

Offseason

Regular season

1969 was a year of transition for the organization. Dick Allen was suspended by the team for a month after missing a game against the New York Mets. Claiming that Allen was undermining him by going directly to owner R. R. M. Carpenter, Jr., manager Bob Skinner surprised the club by resigning on August 6. Skinner blasted the club for their handling of Allen and blamed Allen for the team's losing saying, "Allen has been a big factor in our losing and there is very definitely disharmony on the club." Skinner was replaced by coach George Myatt.[6] Allen would be traded from the club after the season. In addition to the turmoil in the clubhouse, the Phillies had expected that 1969 would be their final season at Connie Mack Stadium with an April 1970 opening planned for Veterans Stadium. Delays would push the Vet's opening to April 1971.

At Connie Mack Stadium on April 17, 1969, Montreal Expos pitcher Bill Stoneman threw a no-hitter against the Phillies. It was Stoneman's fifth major league start and only the ninth game of the Expos' existence.[7]

In conjunction with Major League Baseball's celebration in 1969 of the 100th anniversary of professional baseball, the Phillies conducted a fan vote to determine their all-time team. The players were honored on August 5, 1969, at Connie Mack Stadium before the Phillies' game against the San Francisco Giants. Commissioner Bowie Kuhn was on hand to recognize Robin Roberts as the Phillies' greatest player of all time.[8]

The Phillies recorded four straight complete-game shutouts from August 13 to 16, 1969. The Phillies shutout the Atlanta Braves two games in a row in Atlanta then returned to Philadelphia, where they shut out the Houston Astros in the following two games.[9]
