Asked in Major League Baseball (MLB)
Were there 2 Philadelphia baseball teams at the same time?
Nope. There were the Philadelphia Athletics and Phillies, but they were at completely different times. I beg to differ. The Phillies have been there since 1883. The Athletics got an American league charter in 1901 and played there until moving to Kansas City in 1955. Subsequently, that franchise moved to Oakland in 1968. So yes, there were two baseball teams in Philadelphia at the same time.
