There are fans and then there are Phans. As the Official Bank of the Philadelphia
Phillies, we’re as phanatic as it gets. Here in the Phan Dugout, diehards
like us can dig a
little deeper into the home of the Phillies. Test your knowledge with the Phan Trivia Challenge above, or learn about some of
the details that make Citizens Bank Park such a special place.
A Modern Classic
Architecturally, the ballpark echoes the city itself and a former Phillies stomping
ground. The 4 corner entrances were built in likeness of Philadelphia’s 4
squares, and the layout was inspired by the original Connie Mack Stadium. Citizens
Bank Park hosted its first game on April 12, 2004, to a sold-out crowd of 43,500.
Hall of Fame
Within the ballpark, there is a wide range of Phillies-inspired artwork including
four 10-foot statues of Phillies Hall of Famers by world-renowned sculptor Zenos
Frudakis. You’ll also find original artwork, by Dane Tilghman, a local Philly
artist, and Dick Perez, the official artist of the Baseball Hall of Fame. The newest
addition is a bronze statue of legendary Phillies announcer Harry Kalas.
Up Close & Personal
The ballpark’s unique construction includes “The Break” (near
Section 210), an architectural feature that brings the Pavilion deck closer to the
playing field and provides majestic views of the Philadelphia skyline.
By now you've probably noticed the Liberty Bell. Its ring can be heard throughout
the park after every Phillies homer. Standing 50 feet tall and 35 feet wide and
outlined in bright neon lights, there's only one thing that rivals it: our state-of-the-art
HD Video Board, or as we like to call it, the Phanavision. As the largest LED display
in the National League, it's kind of hard to miss.
Citizens At The Park
Ashburn Alley is one of the most unique spots in the ballpark. It opens 2½ hours
before game time, so fans can enjoy concessions, batting practice and the Citizens
Bank Games of Baseball. These free, interactive games allow fans to test their physical
skills and their Phillies phandom. Learn more in our Ballpark Bankers section
Memory Lane & the Wall of Fame
Memory Lane offers an illustrated history of the Philadelphia Phillies. It covers
every era of the team and is a must-see for any phan. Right next to Memory Lane
is the Wall of Fame, where Phillies legends are immortalized. Stop by and pay tribute
to greats like Tug McGraw and Richie Ashburn.
