    Offseason

    • Bill Veeck attempted to purchase the Phillies in late 1943. Veeck’s plan was to sign players from the Negro leagues to make the Phillies competitive.[1]

    The organization held a fan contest prior to the 1944 season to solicit a second nickname for the Phillies. Fans voted on Blue Jays and Elizabeth Crooks designed a logo of a blue jay perched on the Phillies word mark.[2]

    Regular season

    The Phillies got off to a 12–6 start, and on May 13 were 1.5 games out of first place. However, it was all downhill from there, as they finished with yet another losing season.
