Ex-Red Sox Kyle Schwarber’s Message After World Series Loss

'Can't wait to make many more memories here'


Nov 8, 2022

The Philadelphia Phillies came up short in the 2022 World Series against the Houston Astros in six games, and slugger Kyle Schwarber issued a heartfelt message to fans on Wednesday.

The Phillies, following their 87-75 campaign during the regular season — good for third place in the National League East — underwent a challenge-filled journey to the Fall Classic: Kicking off their October hunt in the NL wild card against the St. Louis Cardinals, then facing the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves and followed by taking on the San Diego Padres in the NLCS.

On Tuesday, Schwarber took to Twitter to release his statement to the Philly faithful.

“THANK YOU Philly for making our first year here so memorable! You guys were ELECTRIC! This was a special group and you guys kept us going until the very end! We can’t wait to make many more memories here with you guys! Thank you guys again! #RingTheBell,” Schwarber tweeted.

Schwarber also had quite the campaign himself. The 29-year-old veteran crushed a career-high 46 home runs, which were the most in the NL this past season.

During the postseason, Schwarber’s slugging ways at the plate continued, blasting six homers with 10 RBIs and 13 runs. The six round-tripper total also served as a milestone, tying a previous Major League Baseball record for the most homers from the leadoff spot through a postseason run.

Signed by the Phillies before the 2022 season, Schwarber has three more years remaining in Philadelphia under his current four-year, $79 million dollar contract.
