Citizens Bank Park- Philadelphia Phillies
Citizens Bank Park is a 43,651-seat baseball park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, part of the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, and home of the Philadelphia Phillies. Citizens Bank Park opened on April 3, 2004, and hosted its first regular season baseball game on April 12 of the same year, with the Phillies losing to the Cincinnati Reds, 4–1. The ballpark was built to replace the now-demolished Veterans Stadium (a football/baseball multipurpose facility), and features natural grass and dirt playing field and also features a number of Philadelphia-style food stands, including several which serve cheesesteaks, hoagies, and other regional specialties. The ballpark lies on the northeast corner of the Sports Complex, which includes Lincoln Financial Field, Wells Fargo Center, and Xfinity Live!
I know I am from Philly, so I may be biased, but this place is gorgeous. I grew up going to games at The Vet. The Vet wasn’t bad for football, but it was lousy for baseball. As bad as The Vet was for baseball, that’s how good Citizens Bank Park is. Every seat in the infield is good. I once sat in the outfield and considering how far we were from the plate, it wasn’t horrible. But the game is just part of the experience.
