Phillies' zero hero

Phillies without homers.

American patriot Paul Revere ("One, if by bunt, and two, if by steal") has as many major league home runs to his credit as new Phillies centerfielder Ben Revere. But then, so do a lot of other people.

In 1,064 career plate appearances, Revere (Ben) has nary a dinger to proclaim. That is the most PAs among all active homerless players and the fifth-most in the expansion era (since 1961).

But it's not like he will be the first Phillie without any pop in his bat. Here are the players (pitchers and non-pitchers) with the most career PAs for the Phils and no homers to show for it since integration in 1947. (*Denotes current Phillies.)
