PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies announced significant changes to their leadership Wednesday afternoon.
David Montgomery will rejoin the franchise as team chairman, not as team president, the role he had held since 1997. Montgomery took a medical leave of absence in August following jaw bone cancer surgery in May. Pat Gillick replaced Montgomery as interim president, but the team said the interim tag has been removed.
