No. 5 -- The day Chase Utley tied the knot with longtime love Jen. The two were introduced by ex-Eagle Freddie Mitchell while they were all students at UCLA.
Jen and Chase's wedding day is memorable for two reasons -- 1) You could hear the hearts of female Phillies fans breaking around the world and 2) Just one day later, Chase signed a 7 year, $85M contract, cementing his time in Philadelphia.

No. 4 -- Although the Phils didn't win the World Series for a second consecutive year in 2009, Chase Utley's performance was, well, kick ass. He hit two homers a piece in each of the team's wins and three more during the series. That was enough to tie Reggie Jackson for most in a Fall Classic.

No. 3 -- In Game 2 of the NLDS, Philly's favorite second baseman faked like he got hit by a pitch thrown by Cincinnati's Aroldis Chapman. He was awarded first base.
After the game, Chase was quoted as saying "I'm not sure," when asked if he was hit by the pitch.

No. 2 -- The 2008 World Series win. It was set off by Chase in the 7th inning. The game was tied and Utley pump-faked to first on a grounder to coax the Rays' Jason Bartlett home, then he threw to the plate to get the go-ahead run out.
Two innings later, the Phils won the World Series.
