Citizens Bank Park

The Citizens Bank Park is a Major League Baseball - mlb. Citizens Bank Park is a 43,302-seat baseball-only stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that opened on April 3, 2004 and hosted its first regular season baseball game on April 12. It was built to replace the now-demolished Veterans Stadium (a football/baseball facility) and is the home of the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team. The ballpark features natural grass and dirt playing field and boasts many Philadelphia style food stands, including cheesesteaks, hoagies, and other regional specialties. Behind center field is Ashburn Alley, named after Phillies great center fielder and Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn, a walkway featuring restaurants and memorabilia from Phillies history, along with a restaurant/bar and grille called "Harry The K's" named after Hall of Fame broadcaster Harry Kalas. This area opens two-and-a-half hours before the scheduled first pitch, much like Eutaw Street at Oriole Park at Camden Yards via the Left Field Gate, except on Opening Day, when all gates open three hours before the scheduled first pitch.
