Robert Ruliph Morgan Carpenter, III (b. 1940)

Ruly Carpenter, whose family made their fortune with DuPont Chemicals, was a Yale educated businessman who inherited the presidency of the Philadelphia Phillies upon the resignation of the father, Bob Carpenter, in 1972.

Carpenter oversaw four division titles and their only World Series title during his eight years as president and owner. The Carpenters sold the club to Bill Giles in 1981, thus ending a 38 year relationship with the club.
