The Philadelphia Phillies are finally back in the playoffs after an 11-year drought. Philadelphia kicks off its postseason journey on Friday in Game 1 against the St. Louis Cardinals, and fans are buzzing with excitement.

The Phillies' Twitter account added to the hype by posting an awesome video before first pitch.

Phillies legends Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins serve as narrators in this clip, recounting all the times this team's season was declared "over" because of early bullpen issues, Bryce Harper's injury and a midseason shakeup at manager. But despite the obstacles, several players have stepped up and led this club to the postseason for the first time since 2011.

Now Philadelphia is being doubted once again against St. Louis in the Wild Card Round. The Phillies have overcome adversity all season long, however, so they're plenty capable of doing so again.

Philadelphia enters Friday's opening game at -110 on the moneyline and +162 on the -1.5 run line, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds. The Phillies are slight underdogs to win the series, however, with +102 odds to win the new best-of-three setup.
