Monday night, the Phillies will honor Jimmy Rollins for setting the team record for hits. They’ll also be introducing a new feature to Citizens Bank Park: A phone charging station. No longer will you have to turn off your phone or put it in airplane mode in order to save your battery while at the ballpark. The Phillies will also be providing cords.
The charging station sits on the rooftop outside the TV booth in center field. (If you’re facing the skyline while on the rooftop, it will be on the left side.) What’s nice about the Phillies’ charging station is you’ll still be able to watch the game while your phone charges. And the rooftop is the perfect place for people-watching at CBP as well (if you’re into checking out thousands of people in t-shirts).

The New York Mets didn’t just thrash the Phillies during their recent series against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. The team also set a record for most cheesesteaks eaten by a visiting team in a single day. That record is a whopping 103.

Tonight, when the Phillies take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park, there will be a new beer available at the ballpark. Sly Fox 360 is the beer and it will be available in 16-ounce wide-open lid cans. The can itself will be a matte gray with muted graphics for a stark and unusual look. but this isn’t some all-about-the-design of the can beer. Sly Fox 360 has been in the works for more than a year, making its debut at last year’s Craft Brewer’s Conference in Washington D.C. The 6.2% ABV beer is described as “a combination of Bravo, Cascade, Centennial and an experimental hop variety.”
Look for the beer at Citizen Bank Park’s craft beer stands this weekend, including Ashburn Alley’s Alley Brewing Co. The beer also won’t be exclusive to the ballpark, look for it showing up at area retailers in the coming weeks.
