The 1960 Philadelphia Phillies season was the 78th in franchise history. The team finished in eighth place in the National League with a record of 59-95, 36 games behind the NL and World Series Champion Pittsburgh Pirates.

Offseason

Regular season

Manager Eddie Sawyer abruptly resigned after the season opener. The Phillies hired Gene Mauch as his replacement, but coach Andy Cohen managed one game before Mauch could join the team from the Minneapolis Millers, leading the Phillies to a 5-4 win in ten innings over the Milwaukee Braves.[6] This was the only game Cohen ever managed in the major leagues, leaving him with a perfect record as a manager.[7]
