Reading Phillies Announce Name Change

The Reading Phillies have been affiliated with the Phils of the Bigs since 1967. While their allegiance to the Phils isn’t in question, the branding of the Double A ball club is set to undergo some serious change. The first evidence of those changes came in a Sunday announcement that the team will change its name prior to the 2013 season. On November 17th, the Reading Phillies will unveil a new club name, new unis, and a new logo during a ceremony at Reading’s FirstEnergy Stadium. So, all of the free gear you picked up as promotions at R-Phils games is now considered “throwback.” [Daily News]
