At the time of this books publication, Chris Wheeler wass coming up on his fortieth year working for the Philadelphia Phillies, the last thirty-three as a widely recognized television and radio broadcaster. He is one of the few people in the Phillies to have participated in both championship seasons1980 and 2008.

As Tim McCarver points out in his foreword, Chris Wheeler is accomplished at telling stories. From his first experience behind a mic at Penn State in the 1960s to his reflections on the Phillies’ ring ceremony at the Ball Park on April 8, 2009, “Wheels” can paint word pictures like few broadcasters in any sport. His View from the Booth encompasses memorable portraits of people and places you’re invited to share, all the highs and lows of nearly four decades with the never-boring Philadelphia Phillies.
