The Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame has recently announced their class of 2021 inductees, amongst the names of the inductees is former manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, Dallas Green.

Green would start and end his playing career with the Phillies in the 1960s, but Green is much more known for his work after retiring from the game. He returned to manage Philadelphia in 1979, wherein his second season, he'd lead the Phillies to their first-ever World Series win. 

Following the 1980 season, Green would stay for one more year before taking a hiatus from the game, which would see him return in the late 1980s to coach the New York Mets.

Green would come back to Philadelphia once more in 1998 as a special advisor to then-general manager Ed Wade. Green would stay in this position for the remaining 19 years of his life, before passing away on March 22, 2017.

Green joins former Phillies managers, Charlie Manuel, Larry Bowa, and Connie Mack, alongside members of the 1980 Philadelphia roster such as Steve Carlton, Greg Luzinski, and Mike Schmidt, in the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame.
