1980 Championship Phillies

|Name the final-game lineup, as the Phils meet the KC Royals in Game 6 to wind up the Philadelphia Phillies' ONLY championship season (as of 2008, she said optimistically).|
I knew a lot of these guys from a distance as a fan in Philly, and some a little more closely in Clearwater, Florida as a waitress near the spring training camp. It's not always wonderful to meet your heroes, but for the record, Tim McCarver is a class act in every respect. He didn't get to play that last game but I didn't want to leave him out so I'm mentioning him here with respect and gratitude. The guy he caught for (who started the game but didn't win it) was a world-class jerk, so I left him out on purpose (sooner or later, getting on my bad side bites you in the butt).
Welcome to the second-best World Series of my life. Batter up!
