    The 1970 Philadelphia Phillies season was the 88th season for the franchise in Philadelphia. The Phillies finished in fifth place in the National League East with a record of 73-88, 15½ games behind the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Phillies were playing their final season of home games at Connie Mack Stadium, before moving into their new facility, Veterans Stadium, at the start of the following season.

    Offseason

    Regular season

    In June 1970, a series of injuries left the Phillies short a catcher and they activated Doc Edwards, who at the time was their bullpen coach. Edwards responded with two hits in his first game back and then caught a Jim Bunning-Dick Selma two-hitter.[5]
