PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — They didn’t win it all, but the 1993 Phillies remain one of the most beloved Philadelphia sports teams ever.

Today, a few members of that pennant-winning team swapped stories at the team’s annual alumni luncheon, at Citizens Bank Park.

At the luncheon, GM Lee Thomas, outfielder Jim Eisenreich, starter Tommy Greene, reliever Larry Andersen and closer Mitch Williams shared tales of the mullet-topped team that captured the identity of their city.

Manager Jim Fregosi said he didn’t have to get too involved in managing those wacky personalities back then:

“We really didn’t have any of that, because we had one guy that I could call in my office. And I would go, ‘Dutch, take care of that.’  And if he had to pick Curt Schilling up by the throat and throw him in a locker, he took care of it, believe me!”

As for Darren “Dutch” Daulton, who is battling brain cancer (see related stories), Fregosi said he’s a wonderful man and that all his ’93 teammates can do is say a prayer and hope he recovers.
