Now that spring has officially begun, that can only mean one thing. Baseball season has officially started. With Citizens Bank Park right in Philadelphia, it is the perfect place to get away from school and have some outdoor Phillies fun.

“I’m not a huge fan of the game, but being with my friends makes it a good time,” freshman early childhood and elementary education major Kristen Willis said.

Even if people are not into baseball as a sport, there are plenty of other things to entertain. The atmosphere and the energy of the crowd can give just about anyone spring fever.

Phillies games provide food, games, activities and simply the love of the game. Each and every game is unique with unpredictable results.

The results are not only if the Phillies will win or lose but so much more. Like will that the guy five rows in front of you catch that bag of peanuts or how crazy will that dedicated Phillies fan two seats down from you get if another player strikes out. The list of these unpredictable acts is never ending.

Therefore, if you use the excuse that baseball is not your thing, there are plenty other things to keep you entertained. A Phillies game is a place for friends to get together and just hang out.

“Phillies games are always fun to go to. Whether they win or lose, they bring all the fans together with a common bond,” freshman English secondary education major Diana Trasatti said.

As for those who love the sport of baseball, Citizens Bank Park is perfect. Citizens Bank Park brings opportunities for a fan of the Phillies or even another team to be able to sit right in front of the game and be a fan of the team they love and admire.

The Phillies open their season at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday, April 2. After the week of April 2, the Phillies will play approximately three games per week at home, including both weekdays and weekends. Each week varies, making it flexible to work into any college student’s busy schedule.

There are also many promotional nights for college students too. College nights are on Wednesday. April 4, Fri. April 27, Tuesday. May 15. On these nights there will be dollar hot dogs and even giveaways for college students.

Ticket prices start at about $16 a person. Therefore, this season when sitting around doing nothing remember that the Phillies are soon beginning their season and you are just about a half hour away from all the excitement Citizens Bank Park has to offer.
