The National League established its Player of the Month Award in 1958, but it took 15 years for a Phillies batter to have four weeks good enough to capture it. (Pitcher Jim Bunning did win it in June, 1964, before it was split into two award, the Player and the Pitcher of the Month.)

Domonic Brown is the 11th different Phillies batter to be so honored. His May 2013 is the 21st of those months so honored.
