    The 1975 Philadelphia Phillies season was the 93rd in the history of the franchise. The Phillies finished in second place in the National League East with a record of 86-76, 612 games behind the NL East champion Pittsburgh Pirates. As a result, the Phillies had their first winning season in eight years.

    Return of Dick Allen

    Early in the 1975 season, Phillies general manager Paul Owens wanted a righthanded power hitter and a first baseman with more power than Tommy Hutton, a lefthanded contact hitter. Both Mike Schmidt and Dave Cash lobbied Owens to acquire Dick Allen. Allen had to be persuaded by several of his future teammates that both the organizational and racial climate in Philadelphia had changed for the better since his 1969 departure from the team.

    On May 4, the Phillies traded their first baseman Willie Montañez to the Giants for Garry Maddox which provided a bat for the outfield and opened first for Allen.[4] The Phillies acquired Allen three-days later on May 7, 1975.

    Fans welcomed Allen's return. On May 14, 1975, 30,908 fans came to Veterans Stadium for Allen's return to Philadelphia and saw Steve Carlton shut-out Cincinnati by the score of 4 to 0. Allen played first base, batted fifth between Greg Luzinski and Mike Schmidt and was given a standing ovation when he stepped into the batter's box in a Phillies uniform for the first time since the final game of the 1969 season. Allen lined a two-out single to center, prompting another standing ovation.[5]
