Von Hayes

  1. Von Hayes, Santa collector

    Dec 19, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT


    Much like their team on the field the past couple of seasons, the Phillies social media people have had their share of ups and downs. But every now and then they deposit one deep into the outfield seats. Von Hayes, Santa collector is one of those times. The team posted the above message with the…

  2. The Evster Kicks Ryan Braun Out of the Tribe

    Jul 26, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT


    I don’t think you realize how devastating this whole Ryan Braun steroids thing is to Jewish people. To most non-Jews, it was just “another dude on PEDs” and doesn’t matter because “the Milwaukee Brewers aren’t even a real team” and another reminder that “I have to go to the dentist”. But to an entire population…

    On June 11, 1985 the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the New York Mets by a final of 26-7. The lineup card is a thing of beauty. Via Baseball Reference and Boonie: 1. Von Hayes LF – 3-6, 6 RBI 2. Rick Shu 3B – 4-7, 2 RBI 3. Juan Samuel 2B – 5-7, 2 RBI 4.…

  4. PSA: Von Hayes Has Joined Twitter

    Mar 21, 2013, 11:28 AM EDT

    Former Phillie Von Hayes is something of a fan favorite / legend around these parts so it was with great joy that we learned he was on Twitter last night. When last we checked in with Mr. Five-for-One he was getting handsy with an umpire as manager of the Camden River Sharks. Also, he had a boat that blew up once, or something.

    Enrico: We held a March Madness-style bracket last month in which we picked the 64 greatest Philly athletes of the last 30 years. You were a No. 1 seed and defeated guys like Von Hayes, Wilbert Montgomery, Ron Hextall, Brian Dawkins, Ryan Howard… you met up with Dr. J in the finals and you actually…

  7. You’re Always With Us, HK

    Apr 15, 2011, 7:58 PM EDT

    Two years ago today, with the Phillies playing in Washington, we found out we’d lost Harry Kalas. Two years later, not a game goes by we don’t hear his voice. In our look back at so many of the great Phillies of the past 30 years over the past month, the first thing that came…

    Camden Riversharks manager and former Phillies star Von Hayes got into quite the altercation with an umpire in Monday night’s 5-1 loss against the York Revolution. Apparently Von got a bit handsy with the ump, pushing his face as well as a bit of “pseudo-slapping.” [more photos below] From the York Daily Record: Vincent ejected…

  10. Today in Philly Sports History: Von Hayes Goes Deep Thrice, 1989

    Von Hayes is still probably most famous in Philly lore for the somewhat lopsided deal that not only brought him to Philadelphia in 1983 (for Manny Trillo, Julio Franco, George Vukovich, Jay Baller and Jerry Willard), but gave him an eternal branding as a Phil: Von “Five For One” Hayes. That said, he certainly had…

    One of the fun things to come out of yesterday’s 20 run effort by the Phillies was a quick anecdote mentioned by announcer Chris Wheeler. Wheels informed the audience that former Phillies great Von Hayes has/had a boat named “Two In the First” in homage to the game on June 11th, 1985 against the Mets…

    A new feature here at The 700 Level: card of the week.  Who better to start us off than Von Hayes. Von Hayes, the infamous “5 for 1″ and the namesake of many a fantasy baseball team in the greater Philadelphia region. From Baseball Reference: Lanky, phlegmatic Von Hayes came up with the Cleveland Indians,…
