    The 1976 Philadelphia Phillies season was the 94th season in the history of the franchise. The Phillies won their first National League East title, as they compiled a record of 101-61, nine games ahead of the second-place Pittsburgh Pirates.

    The Phillies lost the NLCS, 3-0 to the Cincinnati Reds. Danny Ozark managed the Phillies, as they played their home games at Veterans Stadium, where the All-Star Game was played that season.

    Offseason

    Regular season

    The final 9-game margin masks how competitive the season actually was. In a scary echo of 1964, the Phillies saw a 15 12-game August lead dwindle to just 3 games as their offense dried up on two late-year road trips.

    Mike Schmidt hit 12 home runs in Philadelphia's first 15 games, including 4 in one game on April 17.[5] No one had hit this many home runs so quickly. In that game, the Phillies and Chicago Cubs combined for thirty-four runs in a game which featured nine home runs.[6] Schmidt's home run feat was later tied by Alex Rodriguez in 2007.

    Schmidt also won his first of 10 Gold Gloves that year, and carried the Phillies to the 1976 NLCS where he hit .308.
