One Philadelphia Phillies had an emotional moment when the team won the NLCS and advanced to the World Series.
The Philadelphia Phillies made it to the postseason for the first time in 11 years, and they are now four wins away from winning the World Series. They swept the St. Louis Cardinals in the Wild Card Round, defeated the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves in four games in the NLDS, and defeated the San Diego Padres in five games in the NLCS to win the pennant.
You have seen the celebrations on Broad Street, with fans climbing up the street light poles. Well, take a look at an emotional celebration from inside Citizens Bank Park.
TikTok user “@triciahunter_,” filmed a video of her father celebrating the win, who was overcome with emotion and pointing to the sky. In the caption of the video, it says that his wife, who passed away one year ago, was “the biggest Phillies fan there ever was.”

What a moment.
The Phillies overcame a 3-2 deficit in Game 5 of the NLCS, after the Padres were down 0-2. In the bottom of the eighth inning of that game, catcher J.T. Realmuto recorded a single, and star outfielder Bryce Harper hit a massive two-run home run to give Philadelphia a late 4-3 lead. The Phillies closed things out in the top of the ninth inning to win the NL pennant for the first time since 2009.
Now, the Phillies will take on the Houston Astros in the World Series. The Astros made it to the Fall Classic for the fourth time in the past six years after they swept the New York Yankees in the ALCS.
Game 1 takes place on Friday, Oct. 28.
