While no longer one of the newer stadiums in Major League Baseball, Citizens Bank Park, the home of the Phillies since 2004, continues to draw millions to its fan-friendly set-up and offerings.

The Phillies have made some renovations to the facility in recent seasons, such as revamping its Wall of Fame wall, adding dining venues and the kid-friendly “The Yard,” with a wiffle ball field, ice cream bar and other offerings.

Not to mention, just about any seat at the venue has a great view of the action on the field. Concerts, too; entering 2019, the venue has hosted two dozen concerts, including several by “The Piano Man” himself, Billy Joel.

It was hard to say goodbye to the Vet after the 2003 season, yet it’s easy to say we are glad to be able to watch at least 81 Phillies games each season at Citizens Bank Park.
