The 1940 Philadelphia Phillies season was the 58th season in the history of the franchise. The team, managed by Doc Prothro, began their third season at Shibe Park and were picked by 73 of 76 writers in the pre-season Associated Press poll of baseball writers to finish last.[1] The Phillies lost 103 games and finished last, 50 games behind the pennant-winning Cincinnati Reds.

Offseason

In March 1940, the Phillies, along with the St. Louis Browns and Boston Bees were made outstanding offers of $5,000,000 by attorney Richard Cantillon for one of the teams to move its franchise to Los Angeles. Phillies owner Gerald Nugent quickly dismissed the possibility of the Phillies considering the move.[2]
