Phillies: Larry Bowa says baseball needs to win fans back

Larry Bowa is a longtime member of the Philadelphia Phillies organization as a player, coach, manager, and now senior advisor to the general manager.

Fifty years ago, Bowa made his major league debut in red pinstripes; 40 years ago, he helped the Phillies to their first-ever World Series championship. And, next season will mark 20 years since he began managing the team.

Bowa’s resume is long, but he hopes when negotiations resume between Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), following the post-2021 season expiration of the collective bargaining agreement, are not anything like we just went through.
