The Fightin Phils' affiliation with the Big Phils has lasted unbroken since 1967, and this affiliation is currently tied for the longest affiliation in Minor League Baseball. The Reading Fightin Phils' relationship with the Philadelphia Phillies was solidified even further when the Philadelphia Phillies purchased the then "Reading Phillies" in 2008. The Reading Fightin Phils are the oldest team in the Eastern League to play in their original and current city. They also played the most seasons under their original name.
The Fighin Phils' stadium, FirstEnergy Stadium which was built in 1951 and was previously known as Reading Municipal Memorial Stadium, has been home to the Reading Fightin Phils since their establishment in 1967. The stadium seats 9,000 fans, and on July 3, 2007, the stadium celebrated their ten-millionth fan to attend a game.
