Our Reflections on the Game
Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team
Thoughts from James
Well, this stadium was very red/maroon-colored. Phillie Phanatic is their mascot and was really funny dancing with his big green nose. The field has natural grass and a decent-sized score board. There is a huge lit-up Liberty Bell in right field that swings and lights up and dongs when they hit a home run. We had an exciting game, so we saw the bell in action many times! James
Citizens Bank Park boasts loads of traditional Phillie foods like hoagies and cheesesteaks. The Liberty Bell was cool in the outfield. Easy to get into the park and nice clean rest rooms. All in all we had a good baseball fan experience in Philadelphia! Christie
